Mobile can help drive more federal innovation

 In his July Management Agenda: Innovative Government speech, President Obama outlined his vision for a smarter, more innovative and more responsive government.

He challenged federal leaders across all agencies to harness the power of technology and replicate online efficiencies already available in the private sector, such as tracking a package from shipping to delivery point or filling in information once, on one form, which then populates across multiple forms.

For federal leaders who are ready to think big, I encourage starting small — as in the 3-by-5-inch smartphone device that 91 percent of American adults own.

A mobile-first approach is a must for eGovernment innovation. No longer "nice to have" or novelty items, mobile devices are well on their way to becoming the primary means of accessing the Internet.
