Suzette Kent: Emergency Alert System Test Seeks to Demonstrate Gov’t Digital Transformation

Federal Chief Information Officer Suzette Kent has said the initial test of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System seeks to reflect the role of mobile platforms in advancing the federal government’s digital transformation efforts, MeriTalk reported Wednesday.

“That in itself is a testament to how digital and mobile is a connectivity point between citizens and government,” Kent said of the first official test.

“On the digital side, the focus is delivering high quality services to American citizens, and we are tasked every day to be effective stewards of taxpayer money,” she said Wednesday at a Dell Technologies-hosted summit.

Kent also noted the White House’s “aggressive focus” on efforts to build up and deliver digital experiences to citizens through a cross-agency priority goal in the President’s Management Agenda.
