1 min read

Stuart McGuigan, chief information officer of the State Department, said he would establish new architecture principles and capabilities to enhance information technology across the agency, FedScoop reported Thursday

“It’s important to have data, application and technology architecture,” McGuigan said. “Sometimes we default to technology architecture, but you really need the other two to drive your decisions in technology.”

Recently, he gathered all of State Department’s IT leaders and projects for the Digital Diplomacy Council to discuss cybersecurity reliability and enterprise architecture. McGuigan said that the agency is also utilizing the cloud through President Trump’s latest Cloud Smart strategy. 

The State Department runs 277 posts in the U.S. and abroad, which provide IT services and support programs to government customers.
