PM: Innovation Panel - Making the Most of Your City's Technology
Within Municipal Government, Information Technology is sometimes viewed as “just” a cost center or, occasionally, as a necessary evil.  In this “Instant Gratification” and BYO generation, Open Data, Cloud Computing, Citizen Engagement, Mobile Apps, and Security are all commonly-used systems that turn into buzz phrases that drive information technology projects and have burgeoning effects on SLAs and budgets.  Consequently, projects and systems are rolled out faster than ever before, sometimes without adequately vetting the app or measuring and understanding proof of concept or ROI.  These issues negatively affect project success, creating backlogs, “scope creep”, and costing your agency more money.  If it isn’t already, Information Technology in your agency needs to be reshaped as a strategic operational component.  Experienced City Managers and CIOs will share their advice and experience on how to make the most of your agencies’ technology investments and to utilize IT as more of a strategic partner in running operations efficiently and effectively.
