The second awards ceremony organized by the profession and the CRiP association, which draws its membership from more than 330 major French firms in the public and private sectors, gave the 2015 Chief Technical Officer (CTO) Prize to Cathy Lacomme-Verbiguié in the Newcomers category. The award was judged by a panel of eminent information system professionals and CTOs.
Cathy Lacomme-Verbiguié won her award for the DSI transformation project initiated by CNES’s Chief Information Officer Geneviève Campan. Dubbed REBOOsT, this project aims “to work together more effectively towards a better information system serving users and space projects”.
This transformation, which is key to meeting the technology challenges that lie ahead, has already been applied to improve IT productivity by rethinking operators’ job profiles and outsourcing managed services to a new provider.
Besides this recognition from her peers, Cathy Lacomme-Verbiguié’s award is the result of a team effort. “This award is a really positive signal that I would like to share with all of the people working with me on this exciting project,” she said.
