The States and Enterprise Architecture: How Far Have We Come?
NASCIO conducted a survey or "census" of the U.S. states to assess the level of enterprise architecture (EA) adoption and the experience with the NASCIO EA portfolio of products. NASCIO and the U.S. Department of Justice are interested to know the progress made in building awareness and EA capabilities at the state level. This survey effort and report supports the NASCIO program management function, which is responsible for measuring ongoing progress and effectiveness of NASCIO programs and initiatives.

About The Enterprise Architecture Program

The NASCIO Enterprise Architecture program was developed to enable the mission of state and local government. Government must continually reinvent itself to remain relevant by effectively and efficiently providing services to the citizens of this country. The path to this continual transformation must embrace leadership, management, coordination, communication and technology throughout government. Enterprise architecture is the discipline to appropriately define and leverage these capabilities within the complexities of government.

Funding to support the NASCIO EA Program and information sharing initiative is provided by a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs.
