IT Innovation Adoption
ITAPS urges states to adopt an innovation strategy that can lead to ongoing positive disruption and modernization of the state’s IT enterprise by bringing the user-centric design found in the private sector to state government.

ITAPS recommends that states apply technology solutions that are business-friendly and protect taxpayer’s investments. In this framework, ITAPS has supported state legislation such as “cloud first: policies that have the potential to transform state enterprise systems and modernize government operations.
