Abstract

The DATA Act - IT Infrastructure Guidance
Developed by the Collaboration and Transformation Shared Interest Group
Date Released: August 2015

Planning and implementing the IT changes required to meet the requirements and objectives of the DATA Act (P.L. 113-101), while continuing to meet mission and business goals, is a both a significant challenge and opportunity for engaged IT departments. This report outlines key guidance for IT strategy and operations to facilitate the changes required, while continuing to advance IT modernization and simplification progress. Key areas to address that can set the stage for success – and perhaps even catalyze it - include IT infrastructure consolidation, engaged data governance, and virtualization. This paper explores each of these IT infrastructure governance and investment areas, as pragmatically applied to meet DATA Act objectives.
