Enterprise Architecture Maturity Model
An adaptive, dynamic enterprise architecture enables the enterprise to change and manage the complexities inherent in large government enterprise. Enterprise architecture brings an operating discipline to the organization and prescribes the necessary traceability from strategic intent to the capabilities that enable that intent. These capabilities include both business and technology components. Enterprise architecture doesn’t happen at once. It is an iterative, maturing discipline that provides management the operating discipline for organizing and engaging business and technology components to fulfill the mission of the organization. This maturity model provides a scale or metric for understanding where the organization is in its evolving discipline, and what steps are required to take it to the next level of maturity.

Innovative Funding for Innovative State IT
During the past several years, many states have found it increasingly difficult to obtain funding for state IT projects through traditional means, such as via appropriations from the state general fund. In spite of these tight economic times, citizens’ demand for improved ways of doing business with state government and 24 x 7 access to government services has remained strong. The purpose of Innovative Funding for Innovative State IT: New Trends and Approaches for State IT Funding is to provide states with innovative avenues of funding so that they can provide citizens with the government services they demand. This publication details eleven innovative funding models and provides case studies on how each model has been implemented by a state. Innovative Funding for Innovative State IT also includes a study conducted by NASCIO’s Corporate Leadership Council (CLC) that surveyed the states on the types of funding models they are currently using. The survey results from the twenty-three states that responded are included in this publication.
