Interesting article on InformationWeek today in which the GSA is backing away from a recent appointment of Patrick Stingley as Federal Cloud CTO. Less than a month and a half after the announcement as federal cloud CTO position, Stingley has returned to his role as CTO of the Bureau of Land Management, with the General Services Administration saying the creation of the new role came too early.
According to the statement by GSA CIO Casey Coleman "It just wasn't the right time to have any formalized roles and responsibilities because this is still kind of in the analysis stage, Once it becomes an ongoing initiative, it might be a suitable time to look at roles such as a federal cloud CTO, but it's just a little premature."
To be honest, I was a little puzzled by the appointment of Stingley to the post of Federal Cloud CTO someone with no direct "cloud" experience. I can't help but wonder if he may have over stepped a little on this one.
