Right Now the IT Dashboard shows thousands of IT systems and portfolios (plus 6000?). If all IT systems and investments were better aligned with major govt business lines and number of portfolios reduced to less than 500 then much better chance of applying program management and migrating to mobile and other innovative technologies strategically and cost effectively. Bottom line: the IT investment portfolio is too complex to manage at the enterprise or govtwide level so why not simplify, simplify, simplify.
