ITA Modernisation Journey is Helping Promote US Trade

Gerald Caron, CIO at the ITA, details how its modernisation initiative is enhancing efficiency and effectiveness in promoting US trade interests

With a mission to create prosperity by strengthening the international competitiveness of US industry, promoting trade and investment, and ensuring fair trade and compliance with trade laws and agreements, the International Trade Administration (ITA) is focused on promoting US exports, attracting inbound investment, providing actionable data and information and defending against unfair trade.

Its trade experts and professional staff - approximating 2,200 employees - are based in 100 US cities and 80 international markets.

Tasked with managing the organisation’s IT estate is Gerald Caron, its Chief Information Officer. 

Having transitioned from the Department of State to the Department of Health and Human Services before assuming his position at the ITA around one year ago, Caron's mission is clear: to forge partnerships, align IT solutions with organisational objectives and drive modernisation efforts to meet evolving needs.

A significant aspect of this modernisation journey entails phasing out legacy technologies and transitioning to cloud-based solutions. By retiring outdated applications and embracing cloud technology, the ITA aims to enhance flexibility, streamline operations and improve the overall user experience.
