U.S. Government 2014 Top 10 Predictions

LONDON, March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

U.S. Government 2014 Top 10 Predictions

This IDC Government Insights report discusses the top 10 predictions for 2014 that will heavily influence the direction and magnitude of IT investment, management, and evaluation. It also presents key market drivers affecting these aspects of IT across levels of government in the United States.

"While core government values like mission effectiveness, digital engagement, and operational efficiency still resonate as drivers of IT investment, a new tone seems to be emerging in which IT is seen as an opportunity for transformation, innovation, and growth in services, not solely focused on cost reductions, doing more with less, and maintaining the status quo," says Scott Lundstrom, group vice president and general manager, IDC Government Insights. "Governments will focus more on innovative value creation, shifting the role of IT from back-end operations to citizen services, and performance management will be the new lens by which government services are evaluated."
