NASCIO & NIEM Working Together (webinar)

This webinar presents a discussion on how government can improve its effectiveness through better collaboration and information sharing. Examples of intergovernmental collaborative projects are presented by state and local government recipients of the Best of NIEM awards.

What is NIEM? What should you know about the power of NIEM? As highlighted in NASCIO's 2016 Advocacy Priorities, many, if not all, federal, state, local, tribal and territorial (SLTT) government agencies require some form of information sharing. To address this growing need, the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) is being utilized by all levels of government to advance information sharing efforts and improve the combined performance of agencies and jurisdictions that share information. State government agencies in justice, law enforcement, human services, emergency management and others can reap the benefits of a common framework for information exchange.

NIEM can save organizations time and money by providing consistent, reusable, and repeatable data terms, definitions, and processes. Although NIEM is ten years old, more awareness, education and broader adoption is needed.

Watch this webinar to learn more about the NIEM Program and ways organizations can leverage NIEM for information exchange. The webinar presents the Best of NIEM 2015 winners and shares their stories of how NIEM has helped their organizations improve performance, increase efficiencies, and advance their mission.

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.
