Matt Van Syckle

State IT Leadership of the Year

Montana CTO Matt Van Syckle is at the forefront of an effort, requested last year by Gov. Greg Gianforte, to get every state-government agency digitize 100% of their business processes. While it’s a big challenge, it’s also encouraged the state’s IT agency to be more collaborative and agile in how it modernizes systems. “It’s true business engagement. We’re seeing the business outcomes support the citizens when business and IT work together,” he says. “Now that we’re moving to an all-modern digital government, we can continue to innovate and improve.”
