Commonwealth of Virginia’s EIA Strategy and NIEM Integration Plan

The Commonwealth of Virginia has completed an eight-month strategic planning process to develop an Enterprise Information Architecture (EIA) strategy.  A central element of the EIA strategy involves building exchanges for “citizen-centric” data that conform with the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM).

Virginia’s NIEM integration plan will enable the state government to comply with new statutory requirements for standardizing Person data and promote enhanced capabilities for business-driven information exchanges.  

This webinar will provide insight on Virginia’s emerging EIA strategy and NIEM integration planning.  The primary focus will be on Virginia’s EIA strategic plan and successful implementation of the NIEM Engagement Process.
