The groundbreaking work performed by CITI for State’s data management project has increased the consistency and reusability of data across DOS; facilitated the trending enterprise data global performance metrics; and saved DOS hundreds of thousands of dollars in future system integration costs. It has garnered visibility at the highest levels of State Department leadership.
The mission charged to the CITI team by the U.S. Department of State (DOS) was to establish an enterprise-wide program that institutionalizes data management best practices and provides data-related services to organizations and bureaus across the State Department. To accomplish the goal and to meet the challenges of such a mission, CITI spearheaded three major initiatives: (1) establishing data governance and actively participating in the new Application and Data Coordination Working Group (ADCWG); (2) building the Master Reference Data system (MRD); and (3) bringing to maturity the Department’s enterprise data modeling capability.
All the groundbreaking and foundational work performed by CITI has increased the consistency and reusability of data across State Department applications; facilitated the trending and forecasting of enterprise data related to finances, personnel, and global performance metrics; and saved DOS hundreds of thousands of dollars in future system integration costs by reducing unnecessary data reconciliation, mapping, and data entry. It’s no wonder that this CITI-led data management project has garnered visibility at the highest levels of State Department leadership.
