February 2018 Luncheon – Mr. Mark Wong, Chief Information Officer, Director of the Department of Information Technology, City & County of Honolulu

This month’s featured speaker was Mr. Mark Wong, Chief Information Officer, Director of the Department of Information Technology, City & County of Honolulu. Mark has over 40 years experience in Information Technology. When Mark joined the City & County of Honolulu he found they were using Microsoft Windows and their systems and equipment were antiquated. Three years ago he and his team took on the dubious task of a total technology redesign, and the result was an enterprise operations platform called “Lokahi”. In Hawaiian, lokahi means people or things coming together as one; in a lokahi. The new system uses all the latest technology and includes more than 17,000 layers of data that can be viewed or displayed depending on the situation. The public sector uses this system to request services from the City & County of Honolulu with quicker and more efficient results. Mark and his team are designing apps to be used with their system and one of the more popular apps is the HNL Info App which keeps the public informed of traffic situations, weather advisories, and upcoming public safety events, by sending alerts to their mobile devices. According to Mark, Lokahi is unique because everything is developed and maintained by him and his staff.
