NASCIO conducts a survey of the state CIOs to identify and prioritize the top policy and technology issues facing state government. The CIOs top ten priorities are identified and used as input to NASCIO's programs, planning for conference sessions, and publications.
The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO), Grant Thornton LLP and CompTIA have collaborated for an eighth consecutive year to survey state government IT leaders on current issues, trends and perspectives. The survey sponsors seek to provide these state government IT leaders with an opportunity to voice their thoughts and opinions on matters of high importance. The role of the state CIO is being transformed by challenges to traditional business models, by emerging technologies that have the potential to redefine what we consider as "IT", and by the drive to implement digital government. Governors, legislators and business leaders can benefit from these knowledgeable insights about essential state IT services.
Each year NASCIO honors outstanding IT projects among the states through the NASCIO State IT Recognition Awards. The Awards showcase innovation and excellence in the use of information technology in state government, such as transformational projects and initiatives that address critical business problems, improve business processes and increase citizen engagement in state government.
In 2017, NASCIO's 29th consecutive year of the awards program, volunteer judges selected 11 recipients across 11 categories.
Accenture and the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) surveyed and interviewed a
number of state government leaders to find out. We asked them to describe their experiences with agile and then tell us where and to what extent they succeeded. Seven key factors emerged—all centered on people and their willingness to embrace this methodology and collaborate at every step. And it requires a clear plan of action.
Amid so much talk about Agile implementation methodologies, how many state governments are walking the walk? What are their main drivers and benefits of adopting Agile? And, what are some of the biggest barriers to making it work? Join this webinar to get answers to those questions and more—all based on the findings of a recent study by NASCIO and Accenture.
This brief will open the discussion about blockchains and the potential impact on state government. We won’t delve into the mechanics of blockchains, nor the potential for proliferation of new “e-currencies.” We want to open the door to the world of blockchains through a variety of conversations with leaders in state government and industry in order to begin discussions regarding where blockchain technology can serve the mission of state government.
Agile is changing the game for state governments. To explore the implications and opportunities, Accenture and the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) are partnering on multifaceted research. Drawing from the public and private sectors, the research reveals a comprehensive perspective on the role of Agile within state government.
NASCIO, Grant Thornton LLP and CompTIA have collaborated for a seventh consecutive year to survey state government IT leaders on current issues, trends and perspectives. New service delivery models, innovative technology solutions, and rising customer expectations all require state CIOs to adapt continually to changing circumstances.
