CompTIA launched Sharkbytes—the podcast—hosted by CompTIA which features interviews with CIOs and other tech leaders throughout the local government space, and focuses on contemporary issues facing tech leaders managing city and county operations.
The first few episodes focus on COVID-19 related challenges and then branch into other areas such as critical public safety information sharing, and the transformation from e-government to digital service delivery. This includes the importance of customer (citizen) facing services as well as developing strategies that lead to best-of-class citizen experience techniques.
Emerging tech will also be featured and the podcast series will highlight innovation at the local level including cybersecurity, AI, blockchain, drones, cloud, citizen engagement, digital service delivery, IT modernization, and smart cities just to name a few. The series will also delve into tech careers and learn from the pros on how they navigated their careers as they share stories regarding the ups and downs they’ve encountered along the way.
The intended audience is rather broad and should appeal to those in the profession as well as those aspiring to advance in the ranks of leadership in local government. The series should also appeal to those interested in learning more about the inner workings of local government tech—their priorities, challenges, and search for new solutions.
