S2E4 - Tara Mulrooney, CTO, Alberta Energy Regulator (CanadianCIO of the Year)

Tara Mulrooney is the 2018 CanadianCIO of the Year in the public sector. As the technology leader of the Energy Resources Conservation Board in 2011 and 2012, she faced a legacy environment of myriad custom-built systems, a dependency on expensive consultants and a broken relationship between the business and the IT department. Mulrooney led bold initiatives that included retiring the mainframe, which had been viewed as a core piece of infrastructure previously, building out the in-house talent, and regaining the trust of the business. With the important responsibility of regulating the development of Alberta’s energy sector, Mulrooney recognized the need to have the IT department respond to business needs in an agile manner.
