On May 23, 2012 President Obama issued Presidential Memorandum,-Building a 21st Century Digital Government. The CIO released the strategy entitled “Digital Government Building a 21st Century Platform to Better Serve the American People", which provides agencies with a 12-month roadmap that focuses on priority areas enabling a more efficient and coordinated digital service delivery. The Department of Homeland Security will use this initiative in order to:
- Enable the citizens of America to better leverage government data to spur innovation across our Nation and improve the quality of services for the American people.
- Ensure we seize the opportunity to procure and manage smart devices, applications, and data safely, securely, and efficiently.
- Unlock the power of data and be ready to deliver and receive digital information and services anytime, anywhere and on any device.
The technology landscape is changing very rapidly. The introduction of Cloud Computing, Agile Development and Mobility has provided new and innovative ways to deliver value in Information Technology within the Federal Government. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is working diligently to align with the White House’s Digital Government Strategy. DHS is committed to enabling better utilization of departmental data to improve the quality of services to the American people. DHS will develop services that leverage the unique capabilities of mobile computing and promote innovation while maintaining enhanced security.
