How to save a trillion dollars

From “Technology, Innovation, and Deficit Reduction: Lessons from the IT Industry” hosted by the Center for Strategic and International Studies:

As mounting public deficits dominate discourse in Washington and in state capitals throughout the country, the technology industry is eager to help address the problem. As industry leaders, Michael Dell and Samuel J. Palmisano will discuss ways in which the federal government can save $1 trillion over the next decade by applying homegrown expertise, technology, and organizational innovation to its information networks and management practices. The discussion will draw on an October 2010 Technology CEO Council report, entitled “One Trillion Reasons: How Commercial Best Practices to Maximize Productivity Can Save Taxpayer Money and Enhance Government Services.”
