NASCIO & NIEM Working Together
This webinar presents a discussion on how government can improve its effectiveness through better collaboration and information sharing. Examples of intergovernmental collaborative projects are presented by state and local government recipients of the Best of NIEM awards.
What is NIEM? What should you know about the power of NIEM? As highlighted in NASCIO’s 2016 Advocacy Priorities, many, if not all, federal, state, local, tribal and territorial (SLTT) government agencies require some form of information sharing. To address this growing need, the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) is being utilized by all levels of government to advance information sharing efforts and improve the combined performance of agencies and jurisdictions that share information. State government agencies in justice, law enforcement, human services, emergency management and others can reap the benefits of a common framework for information exchange.
NIEM can save organizations time and money by providing consistent, reusable, and repeatable data terms, definitions, and processes. Although NIEM is ten years old, more awareness, education and broader adoption is needed.
Watch this webinar to learn more about the NIEM Program and ways organizations can leverage NIEM for information exchange. The webinar presents the Best of NIEM 2015 winners and shares their stories of how NIEM has helped their organizations improve performance, increase efficiencies, and advance their mission.
