The Victorian government was attacked this month for its ICT spending, but one global tech chief executive says the problem could have been avoided. The Victorian Auditor-General delivered a strong rebuke to the state government for not being able to provide quantifiable, in-depth reports about how much IT projects were actually costing. Apptio’s chief executive, Sunny Gupta, says the Victorian government could have taken simple steps to mitigate the damage. According to Gupta, there’s no reason why the public sector can’t better use the systems and platforms widely used in the private sector. “With many of the Victorian government’s ICT business cases I absolutely believe there was inefficiency with the model,” Mr Gupta told The Australian. link_icon
