Digital Transformation in Government: The Illinois Blockchain Initiative (webinar)
During this session with NASCIO, a team from Illinois will share their Blockchain experiences and best practices to date including regulatory, industry, technology maturity and potential public sector usage of this emerging technology. They will also drill down on progress to date as the state has embarked upon a series of 5 proof of concept use cases for Blockchain.
 
The Illinois Blockchain Initiative (IBI) was launched earlier this year. The goal of the initiative is to determine if this groundbreaking technology can be leveraged to create more efficient, integrated and trusted state services, while providing a welcoming environment for the Blockchain community. 
 
Blockchain and distributed ledger technology has the potential to transform the delivery of public and private services, redefine the relationship between government and the citizen in terms of data sharing, transparency and trust, and make a leading contribution to the State’s digital transformation.

Why an EA Driven Approach is Crucial to Successful IT Procurement (webinar)
 John MacMillan, CIO, Pennsylvania explains how states can leverage EA for improved IT procurement and align with enterprise IT strategies, architecture and standards-based acquisition.

  • A framework and governance for establishing standards for IT
  • Delivers IT services more effectively through streamlined investments
  • Reduces silos in state government
  • Decreases costs through standardization
  • Assists service providers in framing projects and delivering solutions that are consistent with the state government enterprise direction
  • Streamlines negotiations and contract management

As the brief states, taking an enterprise mentality brings together previously silo-based security and IT tools and allows for ongoing and continuous data monitoring and assessing.
