I.T. Shared Services / Solutions

Single Sign on for Web 2.0 initiatives

The websites http://techtalk.cio.ny.gov/ and tp://techtalk.cio.ny.gov appear to be filled with potential. Can we link the ID's between these two sites so users would have fewer login issues? What about including the state Wiki? (http://wiki.cio.ny.gov/) I look forward to seeing these sites develop.

I.T. Shared Services / Solutions

New Service Rollout Coordination

New services should be rolled out in a coordinated fashion. The affected business units should be aware and trained, a rate should be established, CR should be educated, an order process should be established, and a support plan should be in place. Then the service can be advertised to appropriate customers.

Find Alternative to the closed font CIO/OFT is using, TW Cen MT

Two of the five elements identified by federal CIO Vivek Kundra and others as furthering the administration's technology innovation are "open and transparent government" and "participatory democracy." But how can individual members of the public and small businesses participate in their government if their government is using closed tools? I understand the appeal of our agency-wide TW Cen MT font - it is lean, efficient, ...more »

Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing

CIO/OFT could provide Cloud computing services by deploying high speed links to Cloud vendors such as Google, Amazon, 3Tera, GoGrid, etc. from CIO/OFT Data Centers. This could be an additional service at lower cost and reduced service levels than CIO/OFT Hosted Servers for customers whose program needs are satisfied by this delivery model. This may allow NYENET customers to access virtual Data Center Services using ...more »

Google Apps

Why not use Google Apps and Email like many colleges and universities have switched to. I believe parts of the US Government and the city of Washington, DC use Google Apps and Mail.

Cloud Computer: internal clouds

As an offshoot of my comment against using public cloud services such as Amazon, I believe that actually maintaining a cloud internally using open source tools would be of big benefit to different agencies. From a recent email I sent in response to the request for comments for the NYS Cloud Computing conference: ----- Gary A.

Open Government

Georeferencing More Data

Policymakers at all levels of government, and the public at large, as well as local and regional offices of state agencies, like to have locality-specific information. Often, aggregated stats about statewide programs or policies will be less interesting to those seeking to use data than "how it effects my County/City/Town." Appending a georeference data field to publicly-available records as a convention would allow ...more »

I.T. Policies

Enterprise IT Policies & Standards

I think policies should be linked to the building block of the IT city plan. Just like, city planner enforces certain polices and standards for a particular area (e.g. residential complex, manufacturing complex etc) , similarily , we need to enforce policies at the building blocks/ cluster level. Let me give you an example, if I have to setup some policies for the ECM (Enterprise Content Management) system, then I will ...more »
