This presentation outlines the four pillars of a Holistic Enterprise Architecture: architectural models, framework, methodology, and implementation/solution models. It also explains the business and technology gains, and demystifies the practice of implementing a successful Holistic Enterprise Architecture.
NASCIO's 2004 publication NASCIO on Unlimited Liability - Gaining Traction on the Road to "Win-Win" recommended changes to the state IT procurement policy regarding limitations on liability, and research from 2010 and 2012 show subtle changes have occurred in the states. This infographic indicates which states have limitations on liability in statute, which states have none, and which states are able to negotiate limitations on a case by case basis, and compares the current situation to previous NASCIO research.
Each year NASCIO conducts a survey of the state CIOs to identify and prioritize the top policy and technology issues facing state government. The top ten priorities are identified and used as input to NASCIO's programs, planning for conference sessions, and publications.
This study reports findings and analysis of a comprehensive survey of State Chief Information Security Officers conducted by NASCIO in partnership with Deloitte in July and August of 2012. Both a repeat and extension of a Deloitte-NASCIO survey originally conducted in 2010, it documents the relative strengths and weaknesses of the security programs that protect state governments' vital systems and data. The study identifies areas of concern expressed by state CISOs, and provides a call to action for state CIOs and policy officials on the critical need to support and enhance cybersecurity programs.
For the 2012 observance of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, NASCIO has updated its Resource Guide for State Cyber Security Awareness, Education, and Training Initiatives. The guide includes new information from our state members, who provided examples of state awareness programs and initiatives. This is an additional resource of best-practice information, together with an interactive state map to allow users to drilldown to the actual resources that states have developed or are using to promote cyber awareness. It includes contact information for the CISO, hyperlinks to state security and security awareness pages, and information describing cyber security awareness, training, and education initiatives.
Enterprise architecture is gaining a new level of interest and investment across all sectors of the economy. The motivation is grounded in gaining competitive advantage, reaching new levels of effectiveness, and creating an enterprise that is well orchestrated to continually transform. This need for a complete enterprise-wide discipline becomes even more critical when organizations “join up” to accomplish some purpose, optimize resources, or simply pursue economies of scale.
