With last week’s National Association of State CIOs (NASCIO) Summit a wrap, it’s a great time to revisit the organization’s survey on state CIOs’ top 10 policy and technology priorities for 2017. States have made significant progress working toward these goals this year, but of course, there’s more we can do. To continue this progress, states should look at two strategies that are foundational to meeting nearly every state CIO priority—visibility over every endpoint on their network, and the ability to quickly control those endpoints.
For now, let’s zoom in on three of the top priorities where visibility and control can help: security and risk management, consolidation/optimization, and legacy IT modernization.
