The bridge builder. Tate is deft at balancing the sometimes competing interests of defense and IT. He led the business analysis for DOD’s first software-as-a-service federated cloud — the Enterprise Collaboration and Productivity Solution — to provide standardized capabilities, data transfers and access across organizations. Colleagues say he has a collaborative personality that allows him to build bridges between people and solutions. Roger Thorstenson, director of DOD Information Network modernization, called Tate “the primary person who maintains the big picture over the entire effort and all of its moving parts despite the waves of personnel changes.”
