2017 Fed 100

Federal 100: David Shive

Placeholder 

Name: David Shive
Title: CIO
Agency/Company: General Services Administration

Making innovation stick. Shive spent much of 2016 juggling two technology-heavy roles and strove to turn innovation into measurable results in each. In addition to serving as GSA’s CIO, Shive was acting commissioner of GSA’s nascent Technology Transformation Service. He also spearheaded implementation of GSA’s Technology Business Management framework to facilitate data-driven decision-making and show the business value of IT investments, as well as share tools and playbooks so other agencies could learn from GSA’s experience. Under Shive’s leadership, the agency closed 108 of its 134 data centers, shut down thousands more servers and built a cloud-based, open-source data analytics platform.
