State of the States – NASCIO on Enterprise Architecture
An Emphasis on Cross-Jurisdictional Collaboration across the States
Eric Sweden MSIH MBA, Program Director, Enterprise Architecture & Governance,
National Association of State CIOs (NASCIO)
This session will cover the subject of enterprise architecture from a state government perspective in the United States. Current economic and social pressures are driving government toward the pursuit of innovative delivery processes and organizational structures that involve “joining up” with other jurisdictions. This presentation will include an emphasis on collaboratives within and across the states. “Enterprise Architecture” provides an operating discipline for creating, operating, continual re-evaluation and transformation of an “Enterprise.” In the United States, there is a new emphasis on cross-jurisdictional arrangements and consideration of “Inter-Enterprise” business and technology solutions that cut across agencies, divisions, and jurisdictions involving states, counties and cities. This presentation includes the notion of enterprise architecture as a comprehensive business discipline that drives any investment. This investment is not restricted to information technology investment only.
