Enterprise Systems Integration

This program will explore the possibilities and challenges of integrating information systems both within and across enterprises. The morning session featured encore presentations by two individuals that represent what are quite possibly the largest public and private sector integration efforts currently underway. First, Steve Cooper, CIO of the Department of Homeland Security, described the politics and process of integrating homeland security information across numerous databases and enterprises. Next, Dana Deasy, CIO of Tyco International, gave us a synopsis of his first year on the job, including his attempts to integrate a global conglomerate. The afternoon session began with Cheryl Clark, Deputy CIO of VITA, telling the fascinating story of a new organization’s quest to integrate IT across the various agencies of the Commonwealth of Virginia. We concluded with a panel discussion comparing and contrasting the experiences of the three speakers.
