Sustainability & Transparency: Driving Value in Federal IT

In an environment where every dollar counts, the strategic use of information technology (IT) can enable the transformation to a 21st Century Government by maximizing the value of Federal assets and programs through continued oversight and accountability. Using evidence-based reviews of agency IT portfolios, CIOs are assessing the maturity of their IT portfolio management processes, eliminating duplicative commodity IT investments, adopting IT shared services where they make sense, and managing IT as a strategic investment to improve agency delivery. Taking an enterprise-wide portfolio view also accelerates agencies’ efforts in moving to cloud computing platforms and optimizing the use of data centers across the Government.
