Technology Roadmap Information

Providing our customers with strategic planning information on future technologies and products is an area we strived to improve upon in 2013 and plan to continue that effort in 2014 and beyond.

The Technology Roadmap is a newly developed strategic planning process providing state agencies with technology related information that could impact agency strategic plans and budgets.

In short, it is a snapshot of each state agency’s technology world; providing an inventory of applications and systems. The roadmap is updated on a biannual basis (March and September). It is then distributed to agencies for advanced planning and future budgeting of technologies and products; which may include new service offerings, migrations to new technology versions, or the need to plan for shutting down old systems that can no longer be kept secure or supported.

BIT Points of Contact lead a review of the roadmap; going over your agency’s unique technology needs. The review is documented in an email flagging statewide technology changes that may have an impact on your agency's business needs. The impact(s) may include, but are not limited to: cost, time, training, new opportunities, or planning requirements. BIT Points of Contact can also sit down with your agency and walk through the report to help you plan effectively for any future changes that are necessary.

We know how important it is to try to stay ahead of the ever-evolving technology landscape. BIT staff continue to work collaboratively with our customers to gather information on new technologies while weighing the benefits as well as the conflicts.

The Technology Roadmap may not cover everything that comes up, but we do believe it offers agencies an excellent planning source for necessary technology changes.
