Government Empowered 2016: Modernization - Early Victories in a Marathon

"When a bad guy starts stealing from the IRS, they don't just steal from the IRS because they are a one-stop shop…We're all in this together.

It's sharing of functionality [across government and industry], and it's actually sharing the value."
