FOLSOM, Calif., July 14 (UPI) -- Michigan, which has improved its information infrastructure, has the most digitally advanced state government, a group tracking state government concluded.

Paul Taylor, strategy officer for the Center for Digital Government, said Michigan's ability to fashion an "increasingly shared and robust infrastructure" that helps both the public and businesses in the state was key in the state receiving the high rating.

Michigan was followed on the list by Washington, which had been first in the first three rankings by the Center for Digital Government. The other high-ranking states are: Virginia, Indiana, Arizona, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah and Arkansas while Colorado and North Carolina tied for 10th on the list.

The states will be honored during ceremonies at the National Governors convention this month in Seattle.

The poll, in which all state governors and information officers were asked to participate, tabulated more than 60 measurements in the areas of service delivery, architecture and infrastructure, collaboration and leadership.

The survey was sponsored by Hewlett Packard, Intuit, Microsoft and Symantec.
