CIOs want tools to improve IT and data governance.
Solutions to improve health systems' architecture, assessment, info exchange.
Data centers, critical infrastructure protection.
Tech to provide "open government," performance measures/data, and accountability.
Risk assessment, security safeguards, data protection, and insider-threat detection.
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act:
This 2009 stimulus-generator to build roads, bridges, etc. requires data-management, information reporting and other tools.
Connectivity is key. Wireless too.
Resources, infrastructure, business models need to be shared regardless of agency organizational structure.
Operations, infrastructure, data centers all must be centralized.
Activity-based costing, savings-strategy products can help CIOs stay within budget.
