2020 Fed 100
Federal 100: Lisa Costa
CIO, U.S. Special Operations Command
IT at the tip of the spear.
In 2019, the Special Operations command embarked on an IT modernization campaign, and Costa is playing a key role in its ongoing success. In roughly 10 months, she led the command in implementing cloud capabilities on four networks that support over 80,000 users and developing an enterprise-scale DevSecOps capability that involves continuous integration/continuous delivery containerized microservices, which moves users to solutions in minutes and hours rather than months. She also helped establish a Special Operations Forces code repository to promote the reuse of existing code and helped institutionalize cross-functional teams to make the enterprise more agile and effective.
