State governments continue to face challenges in recruitment, development and retention of IT professionals as they compete with the private sector for talent.
The 2016 survey finds that state CIOs are innovating and promoting the experiences available only in government that the private sector cannot offer, and it seems to be working. Promoting non-salary benefits and a call to public service are two of the most effective strategies.
Dealing with Data
The overwhelming majority of state CIOs consider data governance and management to be a key element of their strategic agendas and operational plans. There has been significant progress in this area in the last several years. The overwhelming majority of respondents indicate their state is integrating or has an interest in the integration of data analytics to develop insights and inform policy decisions.
