Not long ago, it occured to me that we needed a new voice. As the Director of the CECOM Software Engineering Center, I’m always looking for innovative ways to reach out to our Warfighter, colleagues, and friends; to keep our partners informed; and to get feedback whenever possible. I had heard a lot about how government agencies like ours had been reaching out to new audiences using the latest technologies and social media. This really got me thinking: if software engineering is not a static discpline, then we certainly should not be a static organization.
Which brings us here today, introducing the SEC Live blog, out first official foray into the social media world. The SEC Live blog is just one way of connecting with the Warfighter, our partners, civilians, and everyone in between. We’ll be discussing topics like news and events occuring within SEC, the latest technologies and developments in the software field, customer success stories, and many more. We’ll not just be talking; we’ll be listening, too. Your comments and feedback are vital to keeping this blog a platform for open dialogue and meaningful conversation.
The SEC’s mission is simple: Provide life cycle software solutions and services that enable Warfighting superiority and information dominance across the Enterprise. My hope is that this blog serves as a venue to share our mission with new audiences and to remind old friends that our number one goal has and will always be to support the Warfighter through software superiority. This blog will enable our organization and our partners to hear and be heard through this new voice.
I hope that you’ll continue to check in with us here at SEC Live and let us know how we’re doing.
Until next time…
Mr. Nelson Keeler is the Director of the CECOM Software Engineering Center. For more information about this blog or the SEC, please visit our website at http://www.sec.army.mil/secweb/
