With staffing challenges dominating NASCIO's new surveys of both <a href="https://preprod.statescoop.com/nascio-2022-survey-workforce-cio-roles/">state CIOs</a> and <a href="https://preprod.statescoop.com/nascio-deloitte-ciso-survey-cybersecurity-2022/">CISOs</a>, many of those officials are tweaking their hiring practices in hopes of staying competitive for newer, younger workers.

No paradise for dashboards

Despite their popularity among elected city leaders, flashy data dashboards often have limited lifespans and limited utility, a group of U.S. city chief data officers said Tuesday at a Bloomberg Philanthropies event in Amsterdam. “At the beginning of COVID, we built countless dashboards, everyone wanted some kind of dashboard,” said Justin Elszasz, chief data officer of Baltimore. “If you look now, you’ll find most of those dashboards now, they are defunct or not being used, or both.” Read more from Lindsay McKenzie.
