Virginia and New York are the lead investors of government technology according to an assessment of state and local government purchasing behavior released by CDW Government Inc.
The assessment, called the Technology Investment Curve, maps all potential state, county and city government customers against four years of CDW-G customer data.
In this third installment of the investment curve, CDW indexes purchases of storage technologies, which are used to place, keep and retrieve data. The analysis includes six storage technology categories: backup software, storage software, storage area networks, network attached storage, tape backup and drive arrays.
Virginia leads the states with a storage investment profile 625 percent higher than the average, and New York follows with an investment profile 621 percent higher than the average.
Virginia and New York are followed in storage technology investment by Wisconsin, with a storage investment profile 126 percent higher than average.
