Making The Shift from IT to Business Data Governance (webinar)
From an assembly line service model to a one-stop service model, government is increasingly pressured to efficiently streamline and/or collaborate services, internally and for the citizens we serve. What does this mean for the data? Ellena Schoop walked through several recent case studies on data governance in the state of Minnesota, the similarities and differences. This presentation was interactive, and it will help you with techniques on where to start and how to make the shift from IT to the business leading the data governance effort.

Managing Software Risk in a Multi-Sourced Environment (webinar)

This webinar focused on business related software risk.  This is the risk that organizations face that is inherent in systems and applications.  There are three levels of risk associated with the structure of systems.  They include the system level, the technology level and the code level.  In this webinar, we explored the magnitude of risk attributable to each of these layers.  

Systems and applications in the 21st Century enterprise are highly complex involving many layers and components, technologies, languages.  All of this complexity creates risk.  Add to this the advent of cloud, mobile, and new approaches to development such as agile and we find mission critical business processes are supported by highly complex portfolio of technology and development that must be orchestrated by an overall architecture.

We explored what can be done about managing this complexity and the inherent risk that accompanies it. You will learn about the Consortium for IT Software Quality (CISQ) and recent legislation that demonstrates the importance government is placing on this type of risk at the federal and state level.

Digital Transformation in Government: The Illinois Blockchain Initiative (webinar)
During this session with NASCIO, a team from Illinois will share their Blockchain experiences and best practices to date including regulatory, industry, technology maturity and potential public sector usage of this emerging technology. They will also drill down on progress to date as the state has embarked upon a series of 5 proof of concept use cases for Blockchain.
 
The Illinois Blockchain Initiative (IBI) was launched earlier this year. The goal of the initiative is to determine if this groundbreaking technology can be leveraged to create more efficient, integrated and trusted state services, while providing a welcoming environment for the Blockchain community. 
 
Blockchain and distributed ledger technology has the potential to transform the delivery of public and private services, redefine the relationship between government and the citizen in terms of data sharing, transparency and trust, and make a leading contribution to the State’s digital transformation.

Why an EA Driven Approach is Crucial to Successful IT Procurement (webinar)
 John MacMillan, CIO, Pennsylvania explains how states can leverage EA for improved IT procurement and align with enterprise IT strategies, architecture and standards-based acquisition.

Enterprise Architecture (EA) is the blueprint for state information technology (IT), serves as the state's IT vision and drives every enterprise-level decision. EA-driven procurement provides:

  • A framework and governance for establishing standards for IT
  • Delivers IT services more effectively through streamlined investments
  • Reduces silos in state government
  • Decreases costs through standardization
  • Assists service providers in framing projects and delivering solutions that are consistent with the state government enterprise direction
  • Streamlines negotiations and contract management

Blockchains: Moving Digital Government Forward in the States

This brief will open the discussion about blockchains and the potential impact on state government.  We won’t delve into the mechanics of blockchains, nor the potential for proliferation of new “e-currencies.”  We want to open the door to the world of blockchains through a variety of conversations with leaders in state government and industry in order to begin discussions regarding where blockchain technology can serve the mission of state government.

Better Data Security Through Classification: A Game Plan for Smart Cybersecurity Investments
The brief, a joint project between NASCIO’s Cybersecurity Committee and Data Protection Working Group, explains why a risk based cybersecurity approach is the most beneficial to state government data. When states take a risk based approach they improve operational efficiency, assessments are more accurate, attack surfaces are reduced and decision making is improved. As the brief states, taking an enterprise mentality brings together previously silo-based security and IT tools and allows for ongoing and continuous data monitoring and assessing.
