Eddie Ginja, Head of Public Sector at KCOM, discusses his thoughts following Cloud Expo Europe 2018. Eddie quotes the Ministry of Justice’s chief digital and information officer (CDIO) Tom Read’s refreshingly candid view of IT - “Nobody really cares about infrastructure — it’s the backbone,” he said, adding that “as much as possible, we need to stop talking about it and stop putting all our efforts into backend infrastructure.” Eddie goes on to discuss the evolving role of the CIO and explains why the public sector especially needs strong CIOs.
