2018 Fed 100

Federal 100: Joseph F. Klimavicz

 

Name: Joseph F. Klimavicz
Title: CIO
Agency: Department of Justice

Cloud-first for real. Klimavicz, who is leading DOJ’s digital transformation, oversaw a departmentwide initiative to move to a shared, cloud-based productivity suite and successfully migrated more than 80,000 users to the shared service in just 12 months. He also spearheaded data center consolidation efforts and is on track to take the department down to three data centers by March 2019. By moving more activities to the cloud, he is allowing Justice to focus on its mission rather than data center management. In addition, Klimavicz’s efforts are saving money and fostering collaboration across the department.
