This is an update since NASCIO’s last publication on data center consolidation in 2007. This version is a playbook of 10 plays for states who have yet to consolidate their data centers using lessons learned and advice from the trenches from states who have completed enterprise consolidation.
Each year NASCIO honors outstanding IT projects among the states through the NASCIO State IT Recognition Awards. The Awards showcase innovation and excellence in the use of information technology in state government, such as transformational projects and initiatives that address critical business problems, improve business processes and increase citizen engagement in state government.
In 2017, NASCIO's 29th consecutive year of the awards program, volunteer judges selected 11 recipients across 11 categories.
The National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) and the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) have released a joint roadmap for state information technology (IT) procurement reform and process transformation. The report, a product of the NASPO-NASCIO Task Force on IT Procurement Negotiations, includes 18 joint recommendations for IT procurement improvement in relationship building, procurement processes, centralization and legislation & policy. The recommendations are accompanied by suggested implementation methods for the practical application of the joint task force's guidance.
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.
This report describes the purpose and the principles for creating data sharing agreements as well as enterprise wide memorandum of understanding (MOU). The intent is to avoid surprises and ensure everyone involved knows the parameters for sharing certain types of information. When possible, enterprise MOUs should be in place that encourage information sharing. The ultimate outcome is better informed decisions so state government is reaching the outcomes it is seeking for its citizens.
