UiPath Forms Its Public Sector Advisory Board

by sol-admin

Due to the fact that UiPath is not only the top RPA vendor but also a Public Sector Automation Leader, the company recently decided to form its first Public Sector Advisory Board to help uncover automation needs in the public sector, thus accelerating the delivery of public services to citizens.

By this moment, UiPath has deployed its automation platform in more than half of U.S. states and 92 U.S. federal departments and agencies, and the need for automation continues to grow. The U.S. federal government plans to spend $65 billion on digital infrastructure over the next eight years and in a recent NASCIO survey, 77% of state CIOs said their interest in automation software is driven by the need to improve the delivery of services to citizens. The Public Sector Advisory Board’s insight and knowledge of the unique challenges of government organizations, their specific missions, and legislative and policy priorities will inform how UiPath continues to approach this market segment and ultimately will lead to automation solutions that can make governments more efficient and effective.

The first UiPath’s Public Sector Advisory Board amounts to 7 members that will meet regularly and serve a minimum one-year term. Here is a list of those members:

  • Aneesh Chopra – Former U.S. CTO (2009-2012), former Secretary of Technology for the Commonwealth of Virginia (2006-2009), President of CareJourney, and author
  • Tyler Cowen (pictured) – professor and economist at George Mason University
  • Suzette Kent – former CIO of the federal government and CEO of Kent Advisory Services
  • Gopal Khanna – former Director, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, former CIO, State of Minnesota, and Executive-in-Residence at the Medical Industry Leadership Institute at University of Minnesota
  • Matt Lira – former Special Assistant to the President for Innovation Policy and Initiatives at the White House Office of American Innovation
  • Shelley Metzenbaum – former Associate Director of Performance and Personnel Management at White House Office of Management and Budget, launched Performance.gov, government policy implementation expert and advocate
  • John Zangardi – former CIO, Department of Homeland Security, former Acting DoD CIO, former DON CIO, and acquisition executive, and current president of Redhorse Corporation
