Despite the remarkable transformation of the state IT enterprise over the past decade, states can be even more responsive and more capable in delivering services and protecting the states’ data systems and information. That capacity rests critically on the task of reengineering business processes and eliminating redundancies whenever possible. State CIOs have seized on the potential for galvanizing the state IT enterprise to produce better results and reduce costs by engaging in consolidation of state data centers for optimizing the physical infrastructure and to streamline business functions (Source: NASCIO’s Survey on Enterprise Data Center Consolidation in the States: Strategies & Business Justification.)
