State and Local Technology: What You Need to Know

State and local governments increasingly rely on information technology to achieve their missions of serving constituents. But it’s not just the tech itself that agencies need to move forward in a digital era. They also need skilled professionals to manage and secure new tools, as well as effective procurement policies to quickly acquire and deploy new systems.

In this guide, we take a deep dive into the key IT priorities for state and local governments. This guide focuses on nine trends we’re seeing in three distinct areas of IT optimization and modernization: people, procurement and technology.

For each trend, we’ll discuss the challenges and rationales that are pushing agencies to adopt these new tools and methods. We’ll also offer a case study of each trend in action and provide resources to help other state and local organizations get started.

Innovation is taking place at every level of government. This guide helps you understand what that innovation looks like at the state and local levels.
