CompTIA executives were in Tampa and Charlotte in recent weeks to make sure that policymakers and activists at both the Republican and Democratic party conventions were aware of our economic contributions to the economy and that they heard the core concerns of the IT channel as we head into the November election. While tech was not a central focus of either political convention, it was included in each partys official platform. We took the time to read through the party platforms to better understand where each party stood on our most pressing industry issues. Heres a summary below:
Both candidates are making a move to court the IT sector, but they still have a ways to go before November. A recent survey by JZ Analytics for CompTIA found that one in three industry executives is undecided between President Obama and Governor Romney.
Clearly, the IT channel has yet to be swayed by either candidate. But as the election approaches, we should press our policy concerns and engage candidates at all levels to create a supportive environment for the technology sector to continue its global leadership and its job creation drive.
Elizabeth Hyman is the vice president of public advocacy for CompTIA.
