Information Domain


The Information domain defines the roles, technologies, standards, and policies necessary to manage, store, design, and provide the information asset for the State. The disciplines under this domain deal with the transactional nature, decision-making requirements, and geographic component inherent in all information.


Knowledge Management

Defines the roles, standards, and decision-making criteria for the acquisition and deployment of the components that perform the systematic process of finding, selecting, organizing, and distilling information in a way that provides internal, as well as external users easy access to information (i.e. document management, data warehouse and data-marts). Additionally, the Knowledge Management domain defines the components that provide capabilities to store and map demographic insight of the users, what they want, why they want it, and when they want it. Transactional data information is extracted and matched with demographic information to give a 360° perspective of the customer. This data is summarized and historical information is captured.
