Vital Signs of Project Management and Avoiding the Seven Deadly Sins

IT projects constitute some of the largest investments in state government. The risk and frequency of project failures continues to plague state government project and investment portfolios. Some of this is due to the nature of IT projects -- they are highly complex; require significant commitment and engagement from the customer; entail differing intended outcomes; involve changing requirements; do not employ relevant project cost models.

So, what are the underlying reasons for project failure? Trying to uncover the litany of contributing factors is not only challenging, it is controversial. In this session we'll explore some real life projects in order to develop the necessary elements of successful projects through several case studies of failures as well as successful projects. Come with your stories and your questions.

Health Insurance Exchange -- Are you Ready?

While every health insurance exchange is unique and fraught with its own set of issues, common problems are being encountered independent of the approach being pursued. Hear from Health and Human Services the path for exchange implementation.  Then states will share their experiences, contrasting the challenges, similarities and differences associated with implementing a state-based exchange, a federally-facilitated exchange and an existing state-based exchange adapted to meet ACA requirements. Panelists will share their individual experiences and offer "lessons learned" in the pursuit of implementing their state health insurance exchanges.  Panelists will also share their insights and discuss "what's next" -- how they see their health insurance exchange evolving beyond 2014.

Cybersecurity: Governance, Collaboration and Compliance

Today's cyber attacks have greater sophistication, agility and coordination than ever before -- leaving many states relying solely on reactive solutions to mitigate the damage from a security breach.  However, the costs to mitigate damage are exponentially higher and more far-reaching than the costs to prevent it. Integrating proactive security technologies is the only way states can ensure their constituents' data will remaine secure.

This session will highlight the key components of a complete cybersecurity program for states' critical information systems -- including: risk management programs, access control strategies, information protection programs, the management of infrastructure and protection of infrastructure. Additionally, with budgets being cut across the board, this session will look at ways state CIOs can collaborate with agencies and business stakeholders to maximize the use of personnel, resources and technology.

The Federal Digital Information Strategy: Implications for the States

The federal government's Digital Government Strategy aims to leverage government data to spur innovation and improve the quality of citizen services.  Its data-centric, customer-focused approach will make digital information and services available "anytime, anywhere, and on any device."  Since its launch in 2012, the government has developed toolkits for Bring Your Own Device policy, digital metrics and website governance, encouraged adoption of low-cost and secure mobile technologies and APIs, and engaged the public in scores of online challenges.  

Expanding on the DGS approach, the upcoming Information Management policy will make all government data publicly available in a common machine-readable, interoperable and accessible format.  Together, these directives will help agencies build information systems and processes in a way that increases interoperability and openness, while securing and safeguarding information.  Their call for open standards, and other features designed to "liberate" data, will have significant implications for the states' digital services and processes for managing federally funded programs. These frameworks can also assist states in coordinating and integrating their own information management policies and strategies.

This session will engage NASCIO members in a discussion of the opportunities these initiatives will open for more interoperability among all levels of government.  This session will also explore their potential impact on state and local IT programs.

Governors' Performance Dashboards -- Engaging and Informing Citizens on the Progress of Governors' Initiatives

With the explosion of cloud and executive friendly tablet/mobile devices, there has arguably never been a better IT environment in which to conceive of executive information management and operational intelligence solutions that can be made directly available to the highest levels of leadership in government organizations.

Implementing dashboards/business intelligence systems in government is very different from doing it in the private sector. Many of the challenges are familiar ones: organization boundaries, data quality, information sharing, confidentiality concerns, budget sustainability concerns, to name a few.  Addressing these aspects is vital for a successful outcome.

In this panel, a number of case studies will be presented of ongoing tablet-oriented, government executive dashboard projects in which enterprise architecture is being used to address the above challenges.  Project areas covered will include:

  • The enterprise architecture patterns being used
  • The information sharing and organization boundary strategy
  • The business case and sustainability model being used
  • Project management and risk mitigation approach
  • Challenges and lessons learned
