Shawnzia Thomas, CIO of Georgia

Just as the gym is jam-packed on Jan. 1 and all but deserted by the end of the month, resolutions have a way of fading into the background pretty quickly. I’m thinking more in terms of our solid emphases for 2023, forging ahead on our commitments to strengthen state government’s IT capabilities and improve citizen services. We’ll continue migrating agency applications and systems to cloud computing environments. We’ll keep working to empower communities through the expansion of broadband services and connectivity for even the most remote parts of Georgia. And we’ll keep our eyes fixed on cybersecurity, ensuring that we have the right policies in place and adding new tools where we need them. Making real progress will mean we stay in the gym innovating and improving all year long.
