Russia: Government 2.0 Community Does More Than Talk – They Are Active in Fighting Russian Fires Online

Government 2.0 as a Platform in Russia - ICT Citizens Fight Fires

Government 2.0 as a Platform in Russia - ICT Citizens Fight Fires

Global Voices, and Alexey Sidorenko in particular, wrote about their experience in helping to fight the devastating fires in Russia.  It is a great example of what we can do as a community when we simply take the risk of saying “yes, we can” when we are faced with an opportunity to help our fellow citizens.

In particular Alexey took advantage of the platform, developed by the community, to launch a solution.  He didn’t wait for the government itself to respond. Hhe took the challenge in his own hands, with help from the ICT community, to solve the problem by leveraging the platform.  This is living evidence of the power of Government as a Platform thinking.

We continue to try to pursue platform thinking and we get closer each time.  We pushed forward on a new platform for disaster relief with the IADB last month and are proud of the outcomes.  When we arm officials and citizens with the right tools, we can have them all focus on fixing the problems.

Matt Miszewski has been a leader of incredible teams, that accomplished unbelievable goals - together. From rebuilding an enterprise technology strategy from the ground up as Chief Information Officer of the State of Wisconsin to driving a struggling global sales and marketing team to live beyond their potential and helping take their stock from $45/sh to over $110/sh, I have been honored to take on huge challenges and beat them by building collaborative and high performing teams. I was proud to be a regular speaker on Digital Realty's earnings call each quarter and being able to brief and advise the Board of Directors each quarter. Focusing on our shareholders needs while coupling that focus with the needs of our top customers was the combination the street was searching for and our increase in equity value proves the effort worthwhile. Our focus on total leasing costs, net present value of long term leases, closing the gap on cash performance and elimination of stagnant inventory helped to drive a stalled stock. Most proud of standing up a revenue engine that will be used for decades including a renewed global salesforce, inside sales expertise, demand generation focus, new global Partners and Alliances program, sales operations team and a heightened focus on connecting lead development to sales outcomes (including a new social marketing program, AR/PR, digital presence, brand identity refresh, SEO/SEM and a regular campaigning process). Combining decades of technology leadership with this commercial success creates an incredible package to unleash revenue and hack growth for companies from any industry out there.
