Information Technology Investment Management (IT/IM) - What does it mean for state government?

Both industry and governments are challenged to find better, more effective and reliable ways to deliver services to consumers and citizens. Organizations must adapt to the challenges of technology complexity, regulations and change while delivering more for less. IT/IM integrates several methodologies to ensure the limited dollars invested in technology provide the best outcome possible. The state of Georgia will share their approach as well as provide a practical guide to IT/IM for others.

About The Enterprise Architecture Program

The NASCIO Enterprise Architecture program was developed to enable the mission of state and local government. Government must continually reinvent itself to remain relevant by effectively and efficiently providing services to the citizens of this country. The path to this continual transformation must embrace leadership, management, coordination, communication and technology throughout government. Enterprise architecture is the discipline to appropriately define and leverage these capabilities within the complexities of government.

Funding to support the NASCIO EA Program and information sharing initiative is provided by a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs.
