The Financial Information System for California (FI$Cal) has named Kanuri Murty, an award-winning department manager, to the dual role of chief information officer and deputy director for information technology.

Murty, who’s worked in state government since 2015, most recently served as chief of Infrastructure and Platform Services for FI$Cal, the department that manages the system that handles budgeting, procurement, cash management and accounting functions for state government.

The department’s new IT chief won recognition in 2018 with an IT Leadership Award at the California Public Sector CIO Academy.* At the time, he was chief of Business Intelligence and Analytics Services for FI$Cal.

A former longtime CIO for FI$Cal, Subbarao Mupparaju, is now the department’s chief deputy director.

Murty is a veteran of the public and private sectors, having worked in the industry as an executive IT architect, senior IT architect and systems manager for International Business Machines Corp. (IBM), Covansys Inc. and Tata Consultancy Services.

“He led the implementation and operations of several large-scale information technology systems, including the state of Nevada’s NOMADS system and California’s Child Welfare Services and Case Management System,” according to a FI$Cal announcement of his appointment.

Murty began his public-sector career in 2015, coming in as an enterprise architect with the California Department of Technology, where he was responsible for guiding statewide enterprise architecture and digital transformation and technology initiatives.

The Sacramento resident has a Master of Science degree in electronics engineering, and he was a certified IBM Information Technology Specialist and served on the IT Specialist Certification Board while at IBM.
