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.
