Ivor D’Souza: CIOs Should Articulate, Promote IPv6 at Agencies

websiteIvor D’Souza, CIO of the National Institutes of Health‘s National Library of Medicine, believes both agency and IT managers should prepare for the transition of some government websites to the IPv6 protocol, Federal Times reported Thursday.

Aaron Boyd writes that the leadership should work together to address potential challenges in the implementation of IPv6.

“The CIO really needs to be able to articulate how IPv6 can help the mission … being able to articulate it and champion it across the organization,” D’Souza said, according to the report.

He noted that agencies should utilize agile development methods and assess their own intent, capability and approach to IPv6 deployment in order to optimize the results.

Boyd reports that D’Souza highlighted the need to ensure executive buy-in, educate or train staff and plan or manage resources at agencies for the transition of websites and applications to IPv6.
