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
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.
This webinar detailed a report released by the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) and the National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO). The publication, a joint roadmap for state IT procurement reform and process transformation, is titled State IT Procurement Negotiations: Working Together to Reform and Transform and is a product of the NASPO-NASCIO Task Force on IT Procurement Negotiations.
The webinar covered the report’s 18 joint recommendations for IT procurement improvement in relationship building, procurement processes, centralization and legislation & policy and accompanying implementation methods for the practical application of the joint task force's guidance.
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
Amid so much talk about Agile implementation methodologies, how many state governments are walking the walk? What are their main drivers and benefits of adopting Agile? And, what are some of the biggest barriers to making it work? Join this webinar to get answers to those questions and more—all based on the findings of a recent study by NASCIO and Accenture.
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:
