Commonwealth of Virginia’s EIA Strategy and NIEM Integration Plan (webinar)

Commonwealth of Virginia’s EIA Strategy and NIEM Integration Plan

The Commonwealth of Virginia has completed an eight-month strategic planning process to develop an Enterprise Information Architecture (EIA) strategy.  A central element of the EIA strategy involves building exchanges for “citizen-centric” data that conform with the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM).

Virginia’s NIEM integration plan will enable the state government to comply with new statutory requirements for standardizing Person data and promote enhanced capabilities for business-driven information exchanges.

This webinar will provide insight on Virginia’s emerging EIA strategy and NIEM integration planning.  The primary focus will be on Virginia’s EIA strategic plan and successful implementation of the NIEM Engagement Process.

The Changing Roles of the Chief Architect and the CIO (webinar)

Three important findings have combined to motivate this topic:

  • #1 Poor data management performance to date (requires additional or difference effort)
  • #2 Recognition that data is not a project (requires a difference approach)
  • #3 Lack of domain expertise (requires different career preparation)

Combined these three findings require a new look at these roles.  This webinar will explore the role of a Chief Data Officer (CDO) as a function needed by organizations (especially state governments).  While we don’t yet have all the answers, we can at least lay out three necessary but insufficient prerequisites to making progress faster than we have achieved to date.

Summary:
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.

It is only within the past 20 years that we have begun to develop an art and science for identifying and defining the graphical and textual descriptions of whole enterprises. Until this time, any art or science that we had related to this endeavor pertained to parts of enterprises – for example, organizational design and/or systems development. Because the focus of this presentation is on Enterprise Architecture, have there been successful enterprises that were never architected?

Yes. However, they were successful in relation to other non-architected enterprises. Moreover, the pace of change was slower in the industrial age, compared with the information age of today. Contemporary enterprises have to be able to adjust much more rapidly to meet changing demands in the face of global competition. This makes it critical to have readily available descriptive representations of one’s enterprise to use as a basis for making change.

The age-old question now arises in enterprises:

  • How can one change something that one cannot “see”?
  • How does one “see” an enterprise?

This is Holistic Enterprise Architecture.

Hawaii Integrated Information Sharing and the Open Justice Broker Consortium (webinar)

Join us to learn how the state of Hawaii has partnered with state and local government to share justice information using NIEM, and the Global Reference Architecture (GRA).

The presentation will focus on the Hawaii Integrated Justice Information Sharing (HIJIS) program, the state of Maine Incident Reporting Service, and the Open Justice Broker Consortium (OJBC).  The HIJIS program involves Hawaii’s state, county, and federal justice and related non-justice agencies for timely sharing of justice-related information.  The state of Maine has also joined the consortium as a contributing partner.  The OJBC is a consortium of state and local justice information sharing partnerships that is developing and supporting an open source, standards-based platform to enable information sharing services for HIJIS and its other member jurisdictions.  More information on the OJBC and how to join as a partner is provided at www.ojbc.org.

Effective Transformation and Integration that can Enable Cross-jurisdiction Collaboration (webinar)

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.

There is a demand for enterprise architecture and enterprise architects with a comprehensive view of the enterprise that entails all aspects of the business as well as technology.  Universities are responding to this demand through creating courses and complete undergraduate and graduate programs in enterprise architecture.

In this webinar you will receive an overview of Enterprise Architecture as a management discipline, learn about the formation of the Federation of Enterprise Architecture Professional Organizations (FEAPO) and hear about the importance of enterprise architecture discipline in guiding the planning and implementation of cross-jurisdictional collaboratives.

Agenda:

  •      – The Increasing Importance and Expanding Role of Enterprise Architecture
    – Cross-Jurisdictional Collaborations
    the important role of enterprise architecture in identifying, evaluating,
    planning,
    implementing and sustaining cross-jurisdictional collaboratives
    – Overview of the Center for Enterprise Architecture at Penn State University
    On-Line and On-Campus Academic Programs
    Areas of Research
    Industry Support
    – Overview of the Federation of Enterprise Architecture Professional
