State CIOs list security as top priority for 2015

Kenneth Corbin | Nov. 10, 2014
In the coming year, top state tech officials aim to ramp up efforts to secure digital systems as they shift to the cloud, consolidate data centers and move on a host of other priorities.

Priority 3: Optimize and Consolidate Resources and Services
Checking in at No. 3 on state CIOs' list are efforts to optimize and consolidate resources and services, including physical infrastructure such as data centers, much as the feds have been doing in an efforts to reduce their IT footprint and move to a streamlined, multi-tenant cloud architecture.

These are not new priorities, NASCIO's Davis notes.

"Security, cloud services and consolidation remain at the top of the list for the third consecutive year," he says.

Other Priorities on NASCIO's List
Farther down the list of state CIO priorities are efforts to enhance broadband and wireless connectivity, managing IT costs in a frigid budget environment, and recruiting and developing top talent -- a challenge facing government technology officials at all levels.

Rounding out the state CIO agenda are initiatives to block out a strategic IT roadmap, advance mobile technologies and polices in the workplace, develop and test a cohesive disaster recovery and business continuity plan, and improve the tech shop's CRM operation.
