manage information as an asset

We help public sector agencies structure, safeguard and deploy information as a thorough and comprehensive approach to knowledge management, information governance, and data governance.

What could your organization achieve if your data was safe AND deployable?  

Organizations obsessively focus on protecting their data to a point where no one can access it to drive efficiencies and innovation for constituents. Others are so behind in systems or loose with access that the only people innovating with the data are hackers.

 

This happens when organizations are not thinking strategically about information as an asset. Instead, the organization becomes siloed and reactive. Manual and disjointed engagement fosters miscommunication and errors. Information retention, access, security, and privacy standards become outdated, inadequate, or misapplied, and data become convoluted or outright irretrievable. Information and data become IT’s job versus the entire organization’s responsibility. Being reactive and siloed are not good practices for public sector agencies.

 

As a result, legal, compliance and regulatory risks mount, processes grow more intricate, lose standardization, and succumb to inefficiencies. Agencies, constrained by limited resources and expertise, grapple with identifying inefficiencies and opportunities for improvement.

We believe there is a better approach

Information as an Asset combines the three practices of Data Governance, Knowledge Management, and Information Governance,.

A purposeful strategy and structure safeguards the proper deployment of data

Our experience demonstrates that it is possible for the public sector to both safeguard AND deploy data as an asset. Organizations must:

  1. Understand the value of and the risks to their data

  2. Establish an information strategy that empowers the organization’s purpose and operating strategy

  3. Develop a roadmap to define scalable systems and processes for the agency’s core functions that adapt to the growing demands and complexities of the organization

  4. Incorporate AI to augment human service delivery, improve productivity, and manage risks

  5. Create a culture of continuous improvement and innovation
