Federal IT Priorities: Top executives Look to 2013 and Beyond


Federal IT executives at the highest level bear a heavy responsibility. The hardware, software and related infrastructure they oversee play an indispensable role in virtually every aspect of government operations.

As chief information officers seek to manage these complex, often legacy systems, they must also conform to a range of mandates, such as the Federal Information Security Management Act, or FISMA, and guidance from the Office of Management and Budget and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
