Panama: Innovation Driving #Gov20 Agenda

Panama Could be Leading Government 2.0 in Central America

Panama Could be Leading Government 2.0 in Central America

Just finished briefing the Autoridad Nacional para la Innovacion Gubernamentalfrom Panama.  Eduardo Jaen and his team are truly inspirational leaders focused on helping Panama reach its true potential.

Their 311 systemis a great platform upon which they will create part of their Government as a Platform strategy.  They will create opportunity for their citizens, their local software economy and local industry by utilizing their authority surrounding government data for the benefit of all citizens and the country’s national competitiveness.  And they highlighted the fact that they drove the idea of Internet access as a right in Panama, well before the Nordic countries of late.

It was great to see such personal engagement and passion and a critical eye toward the thoughts of the day as well as the ideas of the future.  I sensed only promise during my presentation and not fear, which is a vital component to the success of nations.  As well, their ability to address some of the tougher issues surrounding national competitiveness was a refreshing view into what could be a great Government 2.0 story in Central America.

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.
