2017 IT Priorities: State Government and Higher Education

Every year, select public sector associations release lists of industry priorities. These priorities are usually the result of a large amount of research and shed some light on where key public sector stakeholders will be focusing in the near-term. It is important to stay up-to-date with these evolving priorities in order to keep a leg up on your competition. Here are a few examples from National Association of State CIOs (NASCIO) and EDUCAUSE to start using in your sales and marketing activities.
