The Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA) has clearly had a major impact on government agency IT operations. By requiring agencies to ensure IT leaders take a more active role in the decision processes and policies related to IT resources, it is demanding more accountable, better informed and more strategic-minded IT leaders. It is essential for all agency IT leaders to operate at that level. To make better informed and more effective decisions regarding IT resources, IT leaders need real-time data and an accurate and up-to-date picture of the current state of their IT services.
