Dr. Karl Mathias

Chief Information Officer

U.S. Marshals Service

Like most law enforcement agencies, the Marshals Service depends on mobile communications between its deputies, other law enforcement agencies, and the public. To improve its ability to capture fugitives, manage prisoners, and protect federal judges, the Marshals require real-time mobile access to data collected from multiple sources, including tips from the public.  With that in mind, the Marshal’s Service has embarked on a $107 million modernization program that focuses on process automation and mobility, with cloud at the center. Karl Mathias will discuss how the agency is meeting its specific, mission-critical goals in a wider modernization effort.
