Crossing the FITARA Chasm

FITARA looks to Federal CIOs to expand their expertise on the mission of their agencies.  This shift away from mandates focused predominately on technology priorities – along with IT modernization, Cyber Security, and increasing pressure to gain efficiency – has created a chasm between mission owners and operators.  How do Federal CIOs make it to the other side of the growing chasm?  What new strategies can industry provide – if any – to assist the leap?  What measures have been taken to tackle challenges in modernization, agility, and IT optimization across the chasm?
