State CIOs pick top 10 policy and technology priorities for 2009
Consolidation of IT services, operations, resources and infrastructure is the top management priority of state chief information officers (CIO) for 2009, according to a survey released Wednesday by the Lexington, Ky.-based National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO). Virtualization, the division of a server into several subsystems, is the top priority technology to be used next year.
NASCIO takes the survey each year to keep up with the most recent trends among its membership, said NASCIO President and Minnesota CIO Gopal Khanna in a statement. “This exercise also brings about collaborative initiatives and guides our tactical plans for the year. Consolidation, shared services, budget/cost control and security are clearly at the top of the list of policy priorities.”
