Information Management Services


This service provides for the development, execution and supervision of programs, plans, policies, practices and procedures that properly manage the full data lifecycle needs of an enterprise.

The primary focus at this time is to complete a strategy for Data Governance of enterprise data across the state. Enterprise data consists of data that is collected by two or more state business entities or data shared between state business entities and other outside business entities. Enterprise data needs to be managed as a state asset to provide value to our citizens and stakeholders. The data governance strategy will provide a framework in which decisions about data are aligned with the overall business and application strategy of the state enterprise, which will improve the speed and effectiveness of decisions and processes, promote maximum use of information in terms of value creation, and reduce costs and risks.

To help realize these goals, the state must be able to standardize and manage “master” data – for example vendor and citizen data. This will be accomplished by implementing a Master Data Management (MDM) program, which comprises a set of processes and tools that consistently defines and manages the master data of an organization. These processes include collecting, aggregating, matching, consolidating, quality-assuring, persisting and distributing such data throughout the state to ensure consistency and control in the ongoing maintenance and application of this information.
