Feedback form is now closed.
States are looking to reduce reliance on ‘big bang’ implementations in line with CMS’ guidance on leveraging more modular modernization strategies in order to reduce costs and to enable the IT organization to be more responsive to citizen needs and programmatic outcomes. In order for states to meet with these objectives, they are increasingly looking to agile implementation principles that leverage integration and cloud platforms. Join this workshop to understand state experiences in adopting these models and from vendors who are partnering with states in supporting the transition from both a technology and organizational change management perspective.

Panelist questions will include:
1 -What are some of the most important business drivers in making the decision to embark on this trajectory?
2 -In terms of lessons learned, readiness assessments, what are some of the considerations states should be thinking about when transitioning to this approach?
3 -What capabilities can vendors bring to state teams as partners on these efforts?
4 - What are the major impacts of organizational change management? How is this impacting skillset, HR requirements?
5 - What’s the role of procurement in fulfilling this vision, how have states evolved explored evolving procurement processes?
