Extracting Value from Federal Enterprise Data
Federal agencies are grappling with vast volumes of data generated through diverse sources and systems. By assisting CDOs in developing robust data management strategies, we enable agencies to streamline data processes, enhance data integrity, and optimize decision-making. Our expertise lies in aligning data management practices with agency objectives, leveraging leading-edge technologies, and integrating advanced analytics to unlock actionable insights.
Effective Enterprise Data Management (EDM) programs provide agencies with timely and accurate information to respond to legislative requirements, make informed decisions to optimize investments, enable secure information sharing, and improve mission performance by providing solutions that align with business goals. As enterprises wrestle with the need to design agile, value-driven information-sharing architectures, they also need to develop adaptive information management practices that bridge the gap between business needs and solution delivery.
Citizant’s EDM approach provides practical strategies to deliver tangible benefits to agency lines of business and the communities they serve — citizens, state/local/tribal governments, or industry. Citizant’s unique Middle-Out Architecture Approach enables us to identify quick wins for agency data teams by aligning the bottom-up agency processes and IT environment with top-down regulations and legislative requirements.
We also align data and information solutions with layers of an agency’s Enterprise Architecture (EA). The line-of-sight across EA layers enables agencies to effectively integrate data assets into transformation and modernization plans to:
- Create a business-driven perspective to prioritize opportunities that resolve business problems and optimize investments, while reducing operational risks.
- Ensure a cohesive technical solution for provisioning data-centric services that support stakeholder and community information-sharing needs.
- Implement governance methods that involve business stewards, technical stakeholders, and information-sharing communities.
Our strong process alignment and ability to streamline methodologies provide timely, effective, fit-for-purpose solutions. This flexible approach allows us to scale projects (up or down) while maintaining program quality.
Citizant invests heavily to develop enterprise methods and tool expertise based on best practices from government, industry, and academia. Our team has extensive experience in a variety of data management frameworks, methodologies, best practices, and tools.
