2016 FCW Rising Star Awards Call for Nominations Now Open

Vienna, VA, May 20, 2016 FCW, an 1105 Media publication, is pleased to announce that the call for nominations for the 2016 Rising Star Awards is now open.

FCW's Rising Star awards program recognizes individuals in the first 10 years of their federal IT careers who have gone above and beyond their official job descriptions. The awards are an opportunity for agencies and contractors alike to give their up-and-comers a turn in the spotlight – both as a reward to those top performers and as an example to others.

Rising Star judges look for nominees who not only make a real impact, but also have clear potential to grow into more responsibility in their organizations and in the community at large. The deadline for 2016's submissions is Friday, July 1.

"The senior leaders in IT are certainly important, but it's often the rank-and-file talent that really makes an agency run," FCW Editor-in-Chief Troy K. Schneider said. "The Rising Star awards are about recognizing and celebrating those individuals — the folks who are doing great work today, and look poised to be the leaders of tomorrow."

The winners will be recognized at the GCN dig IT Awards celebration on October 13, 2016 and featured in the November/December issue of FCW. For more information on the Rising Star awards and to nominate an individual, visit https://fcw.com/2016risingstars

2016 GCN dig IT Awards Call for Nominations Now Open

Revamped awards celebrate discovery and innovation in government IT

(VIENNA, VA., April 19, 2016)— GCN and 1105 Public Sector Media Group are pleased to announce that nominations for the 2016 GCN dig IT Awards are now being accepted.

For 28 years, the GCN Awards have showcased general excellence in government IT. This year, with the GCN dig IT Awards, we are sharpening the focus to showcase what matters most: transformative tech that is truly reinventing government.

"Most people know that the government invented the Internet and developed GPS," GCN Editor-in-Chief Troy K. Schneider said. 'But there are so many more examples, each and every year, where public sector is sparking important innovations that don't get nearly the attention they deserve. And governments at all levels are taking new technologies developed elsewhere and using them in remarkably creative ways. That's what led us to the dig IT acronym – this discovery and innovation in government IT should really be put in the spotlight."

The 2016 awards will celebrate leading-edge technologies and the pioneering IT professionals who are driving them forward – a shift from celebrating the teams and project management to an emphasis on the tech that powers key government programs. Anyone may submit a nomination, and all projects developed, tested or deployed by a government agency are eligible.

For each category, a list of finalists will be announced in late July, with the winner named the night of the event by a tech visionary. 2016 Award categories include: Cybersecurity; Cloud & Infrastructure; Data, Analytics & Visualization; Mobile and Robotics & Unmanned Systems – plus an award for the disruptive technologies that are emerging so quickly they don't fit into any of these categories.

GCN Award winners will be featured in the October issue of GCN and at the GCN dig IT Awards Gala celebration October 13, 2016.

At the Gala, 1105 Media will also honor individual employees from the public and private sectors as FCW’s 2016 Rising Stars. These individuals, who are in the first 10 years of their federal IT careers, have made significant impacts on the government technology community and appear poised for broader leadership roles in the years to come.

Presidents and Eagle Award Winners Honored at Annual Federal 100 Gala

(VIENNA, VA., April 12, 2016)-FCW, an 1105 Media, Inc. brand, announced the recipients of the esteemed President's and Eagle Awards at the 27th annual Federal 100 Awards Gala held at The Marriott Marquis in Washington, D.C.

The two winners of the Eagle Award – one from government and one from industry – were selected based upon their impact in federal IT in the past year. The award for the government category went to Mary Davie, Assistant Commissioner of the Office of Integrated Technology Services in the General Services Administration's Federal Acquisition Service, and Daniel Chenok, Executive Director for IBM Center for the Business of Government, received the industry award.

Renato "Renny" DiPentima, a five time Federal 100 award winner and Eagle Award winner in 2003, was honored with the President's Award at the gala for his career-long commitment to mentoring young and midcareer government executives and those who are transitioning to industry.

"A central theme of the Federal 100 awards is that people are the most precious IT commodity," FCW Editor-in-Chief Troy K. Schneider said. "Mary, Renny and Dan are especially good examples of that — their commitment to building relationships across government and industry, seeking out all the stakeholders and mentoring the next generation of leaders is absolutely critical to the federal IT community."

The Federal 100 Awards are presented each year to government and industry leaders celebrating the achievements of the individuals who have gone above and beyond their daily duties to make a difference in the community they serve.

Detailed winner profiles are featured on FCW.com, and appear in the April 15 print and digital issues of FCW.

THE Journal Re-Ups on K-12 Technology Coverage

(VIENNA, VA., April 5, 2016) - 1105 Media is pleased to announce that THE Journal, the premier resource for senior-level K-12 education technology professionals, has taken significant steps since the re-launch of their print product in January 2015 to increase their already expansive coverage of the K-12 technology marketplace. This includes the establishment of a successful Readers' Choice Award Program, the launch of two new industry surveys: IT Salary & Job Satisfaction and Teaching with Technology, and two new staff hires.

"The fact that we've launched back into print, that we're launching new research projects and awards programs and that we're now staffing up the editorial department shows exceptional momentum at a time when other publications are scaling back," said David Nagel, Editor-in-Chief of THE Journal . "We believe in education technology and in the promise it holds for the nation's schools, colleges and universities and the students they serve, and we're committed to the industry and supporting the education community."

In THE Journal's first ever Readers' Choice Awards, education technology professionals voted for the software, hardware and services they consider most vital to the job of educating and supporting America's 50 million K-12 students.

The IT Salary and Job Satisfaction Survey - the only one of its kind in the K-12 education space - polled educators' thoughts on their current career, future prospects, budget, salary and working conditions. The Teaching with Technology Survey will gauge the attitudes and experiences of America's educators toward the technologies they use in their classrooms. It will explore their preferences, level of confidence in their abilities, belief in technology as a teaching and learning tool and outlook for the future.

THE Journal is also adding two new editorial members. Richard Chang is the new Associate Editor, and has worked for the Los Angeles Times, Orange County Register, OC Metro and various arts and culture magazines. Sri Ravipati is the new Web Producer for THEJournal.com and CampusTechnology.com and has been an editor and copy editor on academic publications.

"Richard and Sri each bring a great set of skills to the position and will make valuable additions to our team. They'll be reporting on some of the most important topics in technology that are helping to shape the discussion around 21st century learning, from technologies that enable new teaching methods to issues surrounding the protection of student data privacy," said Nagel. "We welcome them to the team and are excited about the contributions they'll be making to our readers and the industry."

THE Journal is the premier resource for K-12 senior-level district and school administrators, IT administration and instructional technologists who make decisions and influence technology purchases for their districts, schools and classrooms. www.thejournal.com

Upcoming Feature: The Taxman’s Tech Troubles

VIENNA, VA., March 22, 2016)— With tax season looming, FCW's lead feature in the March 30th issue is "The Taxman's Tech Troubles," which outlines the technology woes the IRS is facing both in the view of the general public and behind closed doors.

FCW and "The Taxman's Tech Troubles" article author Zach Noble are available for further inquiries or interviews. Contact znoble@1105media.com or (703)576-7081 for more information.

A preview of "The Taxman's Tech Troubles":

The IRS spends $2.5 billion annually on information technology across more than 20 major systems, yet it still relies on a central data processing setup that went online in the 1960s to keep its revenue-collecting cogs turning. The IRS' IT problems are manifold: not enough money, political pressure, technical constraints, a lack of skilled tech professionals and the tax code itself.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen has asked for more money, and he's hopeful he can push legislation to save the IT employees he'll soon otherwise lose. But the code itself continues to knot up his plans.

FCW staff writer Zach Noble notes that only a few of the IT woes at the IRS are visible to the general public (e.g. The "Get Transcript" tool hack). Under the surface, the agency is struggling to modernize its creaky tech, feeling the strain of a budget crunch that forces the agency to abandon new IT because of the costs of keeping its old technology running.

Meighan Berberich Promoted to President of TDWI

(Seattle, WA, March 08, 2016)-1105 Media, Inc. announced this week that Meighan Berberich has been promoted to president of TDWI.

TDWI, a division of 1105, is the leading source of business and technical education, research, and news on all things data. TDWI's comprehensive professional development resources help organizations advance their business intelligence, analytics, and data management teams and projects to more effectively transform data from a growing number of data sources into deeper analytical insights and impact.

Berberich, a seasoned marketing and media executive, has served as the vice president of marketing and general manager for TDWI since April 2015. She returned to 1105 Media after running her own marketing consulting practice focused on early-stage technology companies. She has a depth of experience in enterprise technology as well as the training and certification market. In her previous tenure at 1105, Berberich served as the marketing director—and later, as the general manager—of the Business Technologies Group at 1105 Media which included TDWI. During those six years, Berberich contributed to the dramatic growth of the group's portfolio and profitability, launching more than a dozen products including online and offline events, websites, e-newsletters, and research programs.

Berberich began her career in marketing and media at Miller Freeman. She has also held marketing management roles at Microsoft, Texas Instruments Inc., and Infineon Technologies AG in the United States and Europe.

In conjunction with this change, Steven Crofts will be assuming the role of TDWI chairman. In this new role, Crofts will be focused on providing strategic guidance to TDWI leadership and will spearhead new strategic alliances to expand the reach of the TDWI brand.

"TDWI is a critical component of the 1105 portfolio operating in a very exciting market space where there is tremendous opportunity," said Rajeev Kapur, chief executive officer for 1105 Media. "Meighan's wealth of market knowledge, proven leadership ability, and passion for helping companies create more business value with data will help drive continued growth and innovation at TDWI. With Meighan as president and Steven as chairman, we are well positioned to drive TDWI forward."

"I'm thrilled to be taking on this new leadership role at TDWI," said Berberich. "TDWI features a solid portfolio of high-quality, market-leading education, research, and online media with tremendous growth potential. I look forward to working with the team to evolve and expand this portfolio, ensuring we continue to deliver a great experience and ongoing value to the communities we serve."

Berberich will be based in 1105's Seattle-area office.
