Connecting the Silos: Using Governance Models to Achieve Data Integration
NASCIO’s Interoperability & Integration Committee is proud to present Connecting the Silos: Using Governance Models to Achieve Data Integration. This research brief attempts to answer questions such as, “What needs to be addressed when contemplating an information integration initiative, and what is being done in the states and at the federal level to develop information integration governance models?” It also includes other factors that are impacting governance in integration and offers references to models that have been successfully completed by other states and links to resources on information sharing. The committee is currently exploring the following topics for future briefs: Interoperability Governance; Legal Ownership of Shared Data; Data Standards; Master name Indices; and Integration Maturity Models.

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.
