GCN: How to Improve Data Management at your Agency
State governments keep track of our lives from the day we are born to the day you die. They issue a birth certificate at the beginning, and a death certificate at the end. And in between, governments — local, state or federal — maintain important files about income taxes, property taxes, drivers’ licenses, marriage licenses and more. Given that responsibility, and the fact that public tax dollars maintain those records, agencies must deploy technology that manages and protects such data so that government runs more efficiently and securely than without it.
