The Agency Deputy CIO (DCIO), Enterprise Architect (EA), IT System/Security
Manager (ITSM) and the Open Data Community Evangelist (ODCE) – Over
The DCIO & ITSM at a table, talking about the annual IT budget status. The

Following the initial planning and construction phases, the presence and
benefits of operating Data Centers in Northern Virginia seem currently
limited, or perhaps simply not well-known, in terms of local, positive
community visibility and impact (beyond direct revenue via commercial taxes
