What does it mean to be working on the "right things?" Infosys Public Services
and NASCIO have collaborated to survey state government IT leaders on the
fundamental processes, mechanisms, and criteria necessary to ensure that
State IT is "working on the right things." Based on the results of the survey
and informed by a subset of state CIO interviews, there is certainly a disparity
among the states in their approach to IT investment decision making. Join the
session to hear the study results explained along with insights on how states
can better determine the "right things."
