NASCIO conducts a survey of the state CIOs to identify and prioritize the top policy and technology issues facing state government. The CIOs top ten priorities are identified and used as input to NASCIO's programs, planning for conference sessions, and publications.
The Forces of Change presented in the first paper in this series have a direct relationship to and actually drive what surfaces each year as the Top Ten CIO Priorities. The Top Ten Priorities are essentially presenting the CIO response to these forces. Each year NASCIO asks the state and territorial CIOs to vote on their top priority strategies and top priority technologies. These votes are used to take the pulse of the states and territories as a group and at a point in time. It is through the lens of a Forces for Government Change model that we reframe our Top Ten list in this paper. A new operating model is emerging and will continue to mature as the strategy for addressing the priorities within each state. At its core is the concept that a state CIO’s operational competence and resulting political capital requires a broker of services approach to service delivery.
This webinar covered the findings of the 2018 Cost of a Data Breach study and how states are preparing for and responding to data breaches.
Pew interviewed over 350 state leaders across the U.S. and reviewed relevant laws, documents, and policies in all the states to produce a report detailing five key actions states can take to promote data-driven decision-making:
• Plan ahead by setting up guiding goals and structures.
• Build the state government's capacity to effectively use data.
• Ensure that quality data can be accessed and used by stakeholders.
• Analyze data to create meaningful information.
• Sustain support for continued data efforts.
This webinar provided a fresh understanding of the challenges facing state governments today, as well as insights on how they can capitalize on these key actions to promote data-driven decision-making.
Michele Hovet, KSM Consulting presents Influencing Program Outcomes with Data from the Game Changers session at the NASCIO 2017 Annual Conference in Austin, TX.
In 5 minutes, speakers highlighted a future disrupter for state government.
Effective metadata management is no longer an option, but an absolute requirement for state governments and federal agencies looking to enable their master data management and data governance initiatives. Without proper metadata management their IT departments cannot manage their systems and ensure that they are providing the true value to the agency.
This practical course leverages the lessons learned from successful metadata management programs and it explains:
• Metadata Management Fundamentals
• Business vs. Technical Metadata
• Metadata Management Use Cases
• Metadata ROI
• Metadata Management and Data Management
Provides a step by step approach for initiating the foundations for a successful Enterprise Data Management / Information Management (EDM / EIM) program in state governments based on the DAMA-Data Management Body of Knowledge framework.
Main learning objectives:
- Demonstrating value of using the vendor-neutral DAMA-DMBOK framework for Enterprise Data / Information Management (EDM / EIM)
- Practical approaches to EDM / EIM implementation within state government
- EIM / EDM assessment – the starting point
- Developing an EIM program scope and plan based on the DAMA-DMBOK framework
- Overcoming common challenges and obstacles to success based on actual state government EDM / EIM implementations
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.
