Vasil Jaiani, data management SME at Guidehouse, wrote in a GCN article published Tuesday that public sector agencies should implement foundational data strategies that could help them fully leverage data as a strategic asset and one is finding a data leader.

“Agencies need a leader with undivided attention who believes in the power of leveraging data and can continuously inspire an organization to move forward on this journey,“ Jaiani wrote. “That champion should be included in the senior executive team, as this role is as important as the one of CIO or CTO.“

Another strategy is performing data maturity assessment to evaluate its current state and identify strengths and gaps. Jaiani called on agencies to select a data maturity model based on their unique requirements.

Jaiani said agencies should also create a strategic plan based on their mission, identify key questions that could help advance their missions, conduct an inventory of data systems and critical datasets and select and launch a data governance model.
