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.
