TechWeb’s InformationWeek Government releases key insights from its 2011 Government IT Leadership Forum, an event that brought together more than 200 chief information officers, chief technology officers and other technology decision makers in federal, state, and local government on May 5th in Washington, DC.

Speaking at the Forum, Federal CIO Vivek Kundra said CIOs and other IT leaders in federal government may be able to drive better performance at their agencies by studying the best practices of the private sector.

In a keynote presentation titled, “Brainstorming with the Private Sector,” Kundra was joined by the CIOs of FedEx, Sunoco, and United Stationers, to whom he asked, “What are you guys doing in your organizations to provide better services and address some of the structural issues?”

One day before the Government IT Leadership Forum, Kundra hosted a meeting at the White House, where public and private sector CIOs discussed what’s next in enterprise IT in areas such as mobility, architecture, and delivering IT as a service. That meeting was facilitated by InformationWeek, and the ideas generated there were incorporated into the keynote presentation at the Government IT Leadership Forum.
