These will help you address your pressing issues for information management. The Information Agenda is the proven approach, which will leverage the IOD portfolio and add methodology as well as industry-specific assets for building your strategy and roadmap.Full ScriptLet’s look at how you can leverage information for smarter business outcomes with IBM Information Management.Here are the four starting points to start addressing your information management challenges. First starting point is “Manage Data Over its Lifecycle”. This is about managing all of your structured data – what resides in your database. You need a robust, scalable and flexible infrastructure to manage all of your structured data and you want to keep it safe, secure and accessible and you want to retain for as long as you need it for regulatory compliance needs. That’s what we mean by “Manage Data Over its lifecycle”.The second starting point – “Optimize content, process and compliance management” will provide a streamlined solution for managing all of your unstructured content. This goes back to the information challenge we talked about – Over 80% of data being generated today is unstructured content – paper documents, faxes, s, audio and video files. You need an integrated solution to manage this unstructured content in the context of your business processes and you want to leverage it for your compliance needs.As you build your foundation with structured and unstructured data, you have the need to integrate this data from multiple repositories – applications, databases and file systems, to build a single view of your key business entities : your products, customers, suppliers and your citizens for example. The third starting point is all about creating “Trusted Information” in your organization.Gaining meaningful insights from this information so that you can make the critical decisions that drive smarter outcomes is how you “Optimize your business performance”. This puts planning capabilities, measuring and monitoring and reporting and analysis capabilities into the hands of the business users through out your organization so they can find answers to the three questions that drive performance:How are we doing? Why? What Should we be doing?.As you deploy these technologies and services to manage structured and unstructured content, build trusted information and optimize business performance, Information Agenda provides you with the proven industry-based based approach and assets to build your strategy and roadmap. Information Agenda is the result of our work with thousands of customers, who have successfully leveraged IBM Information On Demand Portfolio. It provides you with targeted workshops and industry accelerators to put your strategy as well as roadmap together for accomplishing your business goals!DataDomainsAnalyticalOperationalMaster DataUnstructured DataMetadataInformation InfrastructureNetwork &MiddlewareSystems Management &AdministrationStorageSystemsData Sources5

10 Information Roadmap Questions to be answered! Which data is a priority (decomposing to the next level)?What architectural capabilities are a priority?What are common capabilities requirements across application initiatives?What are my obstacles?How do I decompose priorities into logical work units?How do we change incrementally?How do we minimize disruption?How do I synchronize architectural change with business need?How do we sequence our architectural capability to get to end-state?What benefits will I see along the way?What is my information supply chain and how do I manage it?What metrics do I need to put in place?How do we move faster, cheaper, and better?

12 Smarter Business Outcomes With Information Agenda Strategy, Roadmaps - Information Agenda GuidesStrategic ImperativesThe key focus areas for a specific industry that are critical to improving overall business performanceCore Management ProcessesThe underlying processes that are prevalent across all areas of the company in every industry and must be managed for improved business performanceSummaryInformation Agenda Industry Guide OverviewFull ScriptThe center of the chart refers to core management processes – these are common across all industries are key to managing your business performance.The outer layer of the industry guide in gray are you strategic imperatives. We are looking at the Industry Guide for Government. “Manage Outcomes of Benefits and Enrollments”, “Citizen-centric experience” are government-specific imperatives that are mapped out here. We also have strategic imperatives such as “Balance risks, security and compliance” as well as “Business Model and Process Transformation” and “Manage costs and reduce operating expenses” as the government organizations must manage these aspects of their operations much like corporations.The Middle layer, in blue are specific business objectives under a strategic imperative. For example, there are 2 business objectives are under the strategic imperative “Citizen-centric experience” : those are “Ease of access to govt. services” – essentially making sure that social services agencies can deliver benefits to the citizens in a timely and efficient manner. Second business objective, “Consistent multi-channel experience to programs” is all about providing access to beneficiaries of social programs access to the relevant information via phone, web and in addition to paper based communications.IBM team will work with specific government agencies to help prioritize the imperatives as well as underlying objectives and will provide a recommendation for a set of information-centric projects and best practices to accomplish these business goals!In addition to industry guides, IBM has also built out Industry-specific accelerators – assets that will help you implement these projects and realize benefits sooner!

13 Business Optimization 4/20/2017Smarter Business Outcomes With Information AgendaSummaryInformation Agenda Industry Guide – Projects overviewFull ScriptLet’s look at the information intensive projects for the strategic initiative – Business Model and Process Transformation for government organization. In order to accomplish the objectives – “Enable trusted access across multi-agencies”, “Enable adaptive, effective operations” and to create “Audit Readiness”, the organization should consider following projects..One of the projects to consider is “Records/Forms management” – this project is all about eliminating the paper records, and moving business processes to electronic data capture through forms and enabling the business processing via a single integrated system, rather than using ad-hoc manual processes. Most government organizations still have paper forms – managing processes based on these forms is cumbersome, expensive and error-prone: “Records and Forms Management” project will eliminate the need to have paper forms, and digitize existing paper based records for future reference, reducing costs and driving greater productivity and citizen satisfaction..Compliance warehouse is about collecting all the information needed for compliance in a central location and making it available as and when it is needed to meet the regulatory compliance needs. Previous projects, “records and forms management” directly feeds this warehouse. After we have built a compliance warehouse to meet regulatory needs, next step is to consider building an Enterprise data warehouse, which will cover the entire span of the organization, all agencies in case of government. In order to have a successful Enterprise data warehouse, you need clean and consistent/standardized data – this is where “Data Cleansing & Quality” project helps you. Last, but not the least, you need a single view of your citizen across all your departments (or agencies) as well as single view of your program or services that are offered to the citizens. An enterprise data warehouse can’t produce quality results, without this master data : The two projects on the right hand side – “Single view of citizen” and “Single view of program/services” help you build this master data.As you establish your foundation with these projects, it’s time to leverage it to do forecasting, budgeting, planning as well as manage performance using Key Performance Indicators, dashboards and scorecards : This is the final set of projects outlined on the top layer.Business OptimizationIBM Information Agenda Guide for Government1313
