Regional cooperation a Must for Government 2.0 Success

The first Microsoft Innovation Center in Reliable Governments (rGov MIC) was launched recently in conjunction with FIDEGOBin the City of Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico.

 This is the first center of its kind worldwide and it will be focusing in on:

-          Promote and facilitate reliable governments through mechanisms such as best practices in public management and sustainable and reusable ICT systems, including open government data

-          Recognize success and award prizes at international, national, regional and local level to governments related to exchange of knowledge, technology and training that promote efficiency, efficacy and excellence in sustainable public management

-          Will serve as a hub for government solutions where partners and customers can see solutions that fit their political and technical needs. This will also allow creating a community of specialized partners in the region to promote integration, deployment and satisfied citizens

-          This Center already signed an MoU with BiscayTIK from Biscay Province, Spain were the will share best practices in both regions and develop best practices for governments

This center will be working with governments across the LATAM region to achieve the best methodology to reduce the gap between government management and the use of technology and will also serve a repository for solutions, examples and model for the local ISV and SI community.

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.
