The State CIO Top 10 showed IT security strategies and tools are at the top of the list across the states, with security topping the list of priority strategies for the third consecutive year. Cloud services and consolidation/optimization remained at the top as second and third rated priorities.
“The survey results show a strong alignment between strategic plans and technology investment,” NASCIO President and Connecticut CIO Mark Raymond said. “Data management, cloud solutions and certainly security are demanding our attention. Consolidation and sharing of services will drive needs to improve identity management, governance and optimization. We will carefully examine these priorities as we develop our work plan for the 2017 program year.”
Broadband and wireless connectivity was No. 10 on the list, including strengthening statewide connectivity and implementing broadband technology opportunities.
NASCIO uses the annual list of priorities to develop strategic areas of focus for the coming year, formulate new committees and working groups, and plan NASCIO conference sessions and publications.
