Chris Cotner: Health IT to Help Drive State IT Budget Increases

budget_EBizState governments will increase spending on information technology projects and procurements that were halted during the recent recession, Deltek’s Chris Cotner writes in a Washington Post article published Monday.

Cotner writes that state IT budgets increased in 2011 due to federal stimulus dollars, slowed in 2012 and 2013, then saw a 4.8 percent rise in fiscal 2014.

IT budgets are distributed among software, communications and networking, computer equipment,  healthcare and social services, general IT operations and maintenance and professional services.

Cotner projects health IT to have the strongest growth rate with general IT operations and maintenance being weakest, despite representing the largest spending category.
