The lack of funding ranked as the number one issue frustrating local government technology executives, according to the results of a national survey conducted by PTI and the Center for Technology Leadership. The feeling that top management does not really understand IT placed second, and the sense of frustration with the public’s general attitude towards government placed third.
Cyber and network security ranked number one among the challenges facing today’s local government IT executive. Keeping abreast of technology advancement ranked second.
The intent of the survey was to identify the technology challenges that local government IT executives face on a daily basis and to understand the professional skill sets that IT executives need to develop and to maintain to be successful.
