The North Dakota Information Technology Data team creates enterprise data strategy, which supports the sharing and accessibility of state data, ensuring data is managed and used appropriately. The data team focuses on data discovery (what data do we have and where), understanding (how is the data used, by whom, and for what purpose), governance (how is the data classified and whether it is used appropriately), and consumption (fully leveraging data assets to make informed decisions). This information helps drive the decision-making process for data strategy.

  • Application Development – This team works closely with the customer to build and maintain custom solutions in a variety of platforms.
  • Data and Analytics – This team assists the customer with using data to discover insights and to draw conclusions, thus enabling more informed decision-making.
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS)- A system that creates, manages, analyzes, and maps of all types of data. GIS connects data to a map, integrating location data (where things are) with all types of descriptive information (what things are like there). This provides a foundation for mapping and analysis that is used in almost every industry.
