Tech CEOs Meet With President

February 1, 2011

Several members of the Technology CEO Council met with President Obama Tuesday to discuss some of the proposals announced in his State of the Union address, as well as how to streamline government with new technology.

The tech CEOs who attended the White House meeting included Ursula Burns of Xerox, Sam Palmisano of IBM, Dell's Michael Dell, Michael Splinter of Applied Materials, Steve Appleton of Micron Technology, and Joseph Tucci of EMC Corp.

The meeting at the White House was closed to the press, but according to White House officials Obama and the executives discussed future investment in the economy, improving science and math education to improve the pool of potential employees, the trade deal with South Korea, and "the benefits of investments in research and development and ways to work together on corporate tax reform."

The business leaders also talked about "reforming and reorganizing the government to streamline the process and improve efficiency through the use of technology."

The council, a tech industry advocacy group made up of CEOs from top U.S. tech firms, usually meets about twice a year with the president.

Dell and Palmisano are set to appear together Wednesday at the Center for Strategic and International Studies to discuss "technology, innovation and deficit reduction."
