Accenture and the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) surveyed and interviewed a
number of state government leaders to find out. We asked them to describe their experiences with agile and then tell us where and to what extent they succeeded. Seven key factors emerged—all centered on people and their willingness to embrace this methodology and collaborate at every step. And it requires a clear plan of action.
The National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) and the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) have released a joint roadmap for state information technology (IT) procurement reform and process transformation. The report, a product of the NASPO-NASCIO Task Force on IT Procurement Negotiations, includes 18 joint recommendations for IT procurement improvement in relationship building, procurement processes, centralization and legislation & policy. The recommendations are accompanied by suggested implementation methods for the practical application of the joint task force's guidance.
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:
This brief will open the discussion about blockchains and the potential impact on state government. We won’t delve into the mechanics of blockchains, nor the potential for proliferation of new “e-currencies.” We want to open the door to the world of blockchains through a variety of conversations with leaders in state government and industry in order to begin discussions regarding where blockchain technology can serve the mission of state government.
Agile is changing the game for state governments. To explore the implications and opportunities, Accenture and the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) are partnering on multifaceted research. Drawing from the public and private sectors, the research reveals a comprehensive perspective on the role of Agile within state government.
This report describes the purpose and the principles for creating data sharing agreements as well as enterprise wide memorandum of understanding (MOU). The intent is to avoid surprises and ensure everyone involved knows the parameters for sharing certain types of information. When possible, enterprise MOUs should be in place that encourage information sharing. The ultimate outcome is better informed decisions so state government is reaching the outcomes it is seeking for its citizens.
