Technology in Government

Public sector IT managers and CIOs are often looking way into the future when it comes to major IT project planning. But what happens when disruptive technologies spring seemingly out of nowhere? How do you plan and budget so far ahead while maintaining the flexibility required to incorporate these new technologies? September’s Techology in Government looks at this issue. There’s lots of international news in this issue as well. Freelancer Fawzia Sheikh reports from Rwanda on that country’s plans to be an ICT hub for the region and wire all classrooms by 2020, while regular columnist Vawn Himmelsbach reports on the use of RFID in Singapore libraries.
