We need to pivot from the concept of government IT spending to government IT investing, because only then will federal agency leaders understand and expect to get something in return. Otherwise, there’s no way to measure the value of the entire government’s $90B federal civilian IT budget. 

One of the largest sources for unplanned and unexpected expenses is underutilized software licenses that cost federal agencies billions of dollars each year. In addition, complicated and time-consuming software maintenance causes significant downtime for IT staff and their systems.
