Business Intelligence (BI) is the catalyst for making good management decisions. The Virginia Information Technologies Agency recognized that BI is key to maintaining Virginia’s excellent management reputation.
This session presents how the initiative to upgrade Virginia’s BI tools recognized that the people and business process issues were more critical to success than the BI technology. You will hear how Virginia’s initiative to upgrade BI tools used the creation of a knowledge worker community of practice – a Business Intelligence Competency Center (BICC) – to raise the level of business involvement in the increased use of BI.
Learn how the focus on the people and process of change, rather than just the technical issues, improved the usefulness of the new tools. You will hear the lessons learned in establishing this center of excellence. We will describe how a BICC can improve the usefulness and effectiveness of BI in your state.
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.
The enhancements in the third version of the Tool-Kit result from the expertise and continued dedication of enterprise architecture practitioners from all levels of government and the private sector. Version 3.0 incorporates an updated governance architecture framework with added roles and responsibilities and a focus on multi-level communication. Process models with explanatory narrative are included for governance and the architecture lifecycle. The Tool-Kit also includes fully populated security domain and application domain blueprints.
