While at OIG, he has overseen the modernization of legacy networking, computing, mobile, and software infrastructure in support of the agency’s mission. Prior to joining HHS, Chris led the enterprise architecture program at the Department of Homeland Security, spent several years as a management consultant, and served as an officer in the navy’s submarine force. Mr. Chilbert holds a Bachelor of Science in Systems Engineering from the United States Naval Academy and a Masters in Business Administration from the College of William and Mary. He was named a 2015 Fed 100 by FCW, as well as a GovTransformer “for being a federal IT leader who can translate complex IT challenges into mission success.”
Enterprise Architecture has become one of the pillars of the federal IT world to help make operations run smoothly, seamlessly and maneuver easily. No matter what technology is touted, or how service oriented and agile the applications are — especially cloud-based or SAAS environments — technology systems must be designed and implemented to support the business or mission and enable processes. If integrated IT systems don’t work or fail, the business or mission may be in jeopardy. The only insurance any enterprise or organization has is a fully articulated and robust EA program.
EA is about understanding the business, the mission and how to maintain, improve, fix or transform it, often involving IT as a transformational mechanism. It helps an agency understand inter-relationships between investments, minimize duplication, improve interoperability and compatibility between systems, and is essential to any agency’s modernization. Every agency has an EA now, but it is not something that can be deployed and forgotten. EA must be kept current and every agency must regularly evaluate how it is working, in order to avoid damaging the enterprise or jeopardizing secure network systems.
Learn how to keep your EA plans relevant and effective for today’s challenges at the 17th annual Enterprise Architecture Conference & Expo.
