Major city chief information officers (CIO) have banded together to launch their own club in the interest of trying to move the bar on urban IT projects. The club, called the Council of Global City CIOs, includes city IT managers from San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Chicago, New York City, The Hague, Dubai, Boston and Seattle.
“The mayors of the world’s cities cannot do it alone. We must work together,” Mayor Muriel Bowser of San Francisco wrote on her blog. The Council will be co-led by San Francisco CIO Miguel A Gamiño, Jr. and Washington, D.C. chief technology officer (CTO) Archana Vemulapalli.
