Video: Reducing IT spend through system procurement and operationDate: Sep 28, 2010
Bill McCluggage, deputy government CIO and director of ICT strategy and policy at the Office of the Government CIO wants to provide a level playing field to enable open source suppliers to compete for business within government.
He would like to be in a position where the government is not 100% reliant on a single supplier. Open source and open standards would allow the government to break supplier lock-ins.
In this video McCluggage speaks to ComputerWeekly.com’s Cliff Saran about how the government will reduce IT spend by revamping how systems are procured and operated.
