CIOs in federal agencies say they're making great strides in security, enterprise management and in making progress on consolidating IT efforts to save money and speed implementation.ARLINGTON, Va.The Information Technology Association of America has found that CIOs in federal agencies think they're making great strides in security, enterprise management and in making progress on consolidating IT efforts to save money and speed implementation.
On the other hand, the ITAA reported that those same CIOs continue to face challenges in those same areas, and that in many cases progress can best be described as uneven. The findings were announced in a press conference Feb. 26 at the ITAA offices here.
The ITAA commissioned management consulting company Grant Thornton Global Public Sector to interview CIOs and CTOs in a variety of civilian, defense and intelligence agencies on a number of topics that included listing their greatest accomplishments for the year, as well as their greatest challenges.
The survey also asked questions relating to turnover and to the level of influence that agency CIOs were able to wield.
