Rachel Lebeaux Rachel Lebeaux Profile: Rachel Lebeaux

Good morning! We’re enjoying some beautiful Indian summer weather here in the Northeast — if only every Monday could start like this! Last week on, we talked to Virginia’s CIO about that state’s IT outsourcing problems, provided links to some free IT outsourcing templates covering SLAs, RFPs and more, and looked at various SOA implementation approaches. Let us know what you think!

How Virginia’s new CIO is fixing the state’s IT outsourcing problems — In a one-on-one interview, Virginia’s CIO explains steps being taken to improve oversight and performance of the state’s $2 billion IT outsourcing deal, which has been beset by delays and other problems.

SOA implementation evolves from open source to Oracle SOA suite — Though SOA is something you do, rather than buy, the CIO at the Screen Actors Guild found the best approach was to go shopping and solve the problem at the database layer.

Free IT outsourcing templates: SLAs, RFPs and more — CIOs pursuing IT outsourcing deals can benefit from templates spelling out SLA and RFP best practices. Here, we’ve provided links to some of the best free IT outsourcing templates on the Web.
