Technology that helps share helps best

How should agencies invest information technology dollars in 2009? The Association for Federal Information Resources Management (AFFIRM) asked 86 senior IT officials and managers to identify technology investments that would most improve the performance of government agencies. Information sharing and collaboration topped the list.

The top-five ranking areas:

Cross agency information sharing and collaboration


Information sharing and privacy


Critical infrastructure sustainability and continuity


Government management


Transparent, citizen-centric government




NOTE: Percentages do not add up to 100 because participants were asked to pick their top three choices from a list.
