Welcome From Our CIO: Dickie Howze

As most of you no doubt have heard – a brief glance at the news will give many examples – governments across the country continue to face financial uncertainty.  As IT professionals, we must accept the challenge to minimize costs while still providing the highest level of IT service possible.  In these times of hard decisions, it is imperative that we understand that spending a dollar on IT costs may impact critical social services – services that our own families may use and need.  The phrase “reinvent state government” has become popular, and this is exactly what we must all do in order to meet our duty to the people that pay us – the citizens of Louisiana.  Please join me as we move forward with IT consolidation for Louisiana State Government to make Louisiana IT more Responsive, Innovative, Efficient, and Effective – to ReInventIT.
