Solution Providers Disappointed In Federal CIO's Exit

Solution providers gathered for Everything Channel's XChange Public Sector conference this week said they were disappointed that the Federal CIO who was driving a cloud computing revolution is apparently throwing in the towel after only two and half years on the job.

The political news website POLITICO reported Thursday that Vivek Kundra, the first ever federal CIO, is planning to leave the White House in August in order to take a post at Harvard University. President Obama tapped Kundra in March 2009 to take the reins of the sprawling federal IT effort after a highly regarded stint as the CIO of Washington, D.C.
