NASA Deputy CIO talks about NASA's IT (BYOD, Google+, Consumer Driven IT, OSS, International Space Apps Challenge and more) on FedScoop Radio
"Ever wondered what it was like to guide the vision of IT in one of the most information-rich technology agencies in the nation? Deputy Chief Information Officer Deborah Diaz talked with FedScoop Radio about exactly that, and the future for NASA IT looks as bright as a million flickering network routers!
Ms. Diaz is certainly excited about the future of code.nasa.gov (as are we!) [at -10:45 on the audio stream], but expands on some of the other hot topics in NASA’s Information Technology community, such as the “Bring Your Own Device” concept [-10:30] and how consumer-driven IT [-10:05] is driving practices in government and NASA in particular.
The International Space Apps Challenge [-9:00] is fast approaching, and FedScoop reporter David Stegon discussed this and other examples of trends [-8:00] that exist in the government space. Among these trends is rethinking how we collaborate [-7:00], and extreme collaboration tools tailored to the end-user [-6:15]. These are things that employees at NASA look to the Office of the CIO to enable. A timely mention of technologies available at CES last year [-5:50] gives some hope to what may emerge this week, especially in the areas of data storage and cloud utilization [-5:15].
Short podcast, 11 minutes'ish, from an IT area and effort (i.e. IT @ NASA) we might not hear often from or about.
