This webinar presents the basics concepts of multisourcing and the “New State CIO Operating Model.” The presentation covers an overview of the NASCIO Multisourcing Initiative which began in January of 2018 in partnership with Integris Applied, Inc. The framework and the maturity model that are being employed as major references throughout the project are presented and explained.
The project workplan includes a survey to be completed by each state and territory, and will be distributed in September 2018. This webinar provides background on the new State CIO Operating Model for those completing the survey. Preliminary results from the survey will be presented at the NASCIO 2018 Annual Conference.
Multisourcing is emerging as the discipline for managing a complex and diversified portfolio of services and service providers. These services are being employed to meet the continual evolving demand for creatively delivering government services through new channels with new functionality. In this evolving circumstance there is the need for a new operating model the state chief information officer can employ to bring together agencies needs and demands with available emerging technologies and management disciplines. This report opens the door to this discussion and explores the underlying forces of change that are driving the need for a new operating model.
This webinar focused on business related software risk. This is the risk that organizations face that is inherent in systems and applications. There are three levels of risk associated with the structure of systems. They include the system level, the technology level and the code level. In this webinar, we explored the magnitude of risk attributable to each of these layers.
Systems and applications in the 21st Century enterprise are highly complex involving many layers and components, technologies, languages. All of this complexity creates risk. Add to this the advent of cloud, mobile, and new approaches to development such as agile and we find mission critical business processes are supported by highly complex portfolio of technology and development that must be orchestrated by an overall architecture.
We explored what can be done about managing this complexity and the inherent risk that accompanies it. You will learn about the Consortium for IT Software Quality (CISQ) and recent legislation that demonstrates the importance government is placing on this type of risk at the federal and state level.
Enterprise Architecture (EA) is the blueprint for state information technology (IT), serves as the state's IT vision and drives every enterprise-level decision. EA-driven procurement provides:
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.
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.
