Dave Mayo, co-founder and President of Everware-CBDI, the international leader in enterprise service solutions, has received a Federal 100 Award from Federal Computer Week for his efforts to improve the management of government IT and for shepherding the development of the Federal CIO Council’s Practical Guide to Federal Service Oriented Architecture in 2008. The Practical Guide represented a collaboration between the CIO Council’s Architecture and Infrastructure Committee and the American Council for Technology / Industry Advisory Council’s Enterprise Architecture Shared Interest Group (ACT/IAC EA-SIG) for which Mr. Mayo is Vice Chair. OMB and the Federal CIO Council are promoting the adoption of SOA as a way to improve organizational agility, information sharing and interoperability – enabling more effective utilization of government resources.

The Federal 100 Awards recognize individuals from government, industry and academia who significantly influence how the federal government buys, uses or manages information technology. Federal 100 winners are recognized for their risk-taking, vision and pioneering spirit in the federal IT community. Winners are nominated by Federal Computer Week readers and selected by an independent panel of judges for their contributions to the development, acquisition or management of federal IT.

The annual Federal 100 Awards Gala — the 20th anniversary of that event — will take place March 25, 2009 at the Ritz-Carlton at Tyson’s Corner, Virginia. Award winning comedian, Kathleen Madigan, will be the featured speaker for the Federal 100 Awards Banquet.
