Now is an exciting time to be involved in the world of technology development,
as the vehicle of innovation continues to accelerate forward into the future. The ‘technolution’ that we’re seeing in cyber security, unmanned systems, information and data technology, advanced weaponry and renewable energy, to name a few, is happening now. And now, right now, is as good a time as any to evolve. To get a sense of what is affecting information technology in the industry today, ExecutiveBiz reached out to Chris Barnett, Vice President of Technology and Chief Technology Officer of General Dynamics IT’s Intelligence Solutions Division, for his views and expert opinion on how we can continue to push the envelope of innovation.
EM: You have been in the GovCon industry for over 20 years. Can you tell our readers what are some of the highlights from your experience?
C. Barnett: It’s really been a privilege to work in this industry. I think one of the things I’ve most enjoyed is working closely with customers in the national security and intelligence communities, specifically in helping them solve challenges and deliver on missions. Another aspect that has been really interesting is sharing a part in how technology has evolved. The last 10 years or so have brought dramatic change in how we share information, secure our applications and use data to solve problems…Who knows what the next 10 years will bring?
