Florida's central IT agency was re-established in 2014, and Jason Allison now serves as its CIO. Recognition of the progress he's made came last month when the Center for Digital Government named Florida "Most Improved" in its biannual Digital States Survey that assesses the technology posture of all 50 states.
At last month's NASCIO annual conference in Orlando, Allison gave Government Technology a look at where the Florida Agency for State Technology is headed now.
Specifically, Allison outlined several modernization projects on the horizon, all of which underscore the importance of data governance as the agency looks at solutions that bring together information from multiple agencies.
