Welcome to the IT Optimization Information Center!
The IT Optimization Information Center is your information access point for the State of Ohio’s Enterprise Information Technology Initiatives.
The State of Ohio is implementing a four-part IT optimization strategy to reduce costs, increase efficiency, and improve agency business processes. The four strategic components are focused on improving IT planning, reducing infrastructure complexity, increasing the use of enterprise applications/solutions, and employing business intelligence tools.
While these four strategic components are very distinct, they are also all highly interrelated.
- Strong central planning and governance provides insight into the business needs of the agencies and provides a holistic view of the enterprise.
- Simplifying the infrastructure reduces costs and provides a foundation for common, enterprise applications and solutions.
- Expanding the use of enterprise applications will facilitate integrating disparate sources of data.
Through this Information Center, we will be informing you of progress on the initiatives that support this strategy and other significant OIT news.
- Realizing this data integration will greatly improve State services and service delivery, enhance policy making and enable enhanced analytic capabilities and reporting options.
Please check back often and let us know if you have any questions or if there is an initiative you would like to learn more about.
