BOSTON, February 2, 2015 – MEGA International has been invited by the Office of the CIO of the Defense Security Service (DSS) to participate in the DSS Industry Day and Technology Exposition on February 18, 2015 in Quantico, VA. The event provides an opportunity for industry partners to hear from agency leaders on current DSS initiatives and emerging challenges in the context of the changing technology and security environment.
MEGA will discuss its solutions for IT strategy delivery, which is an increasingly popular methodology for government agencies and businesses to create risk-aware, cost-effective IT governance. Successful IT strategy delivery incorporates a comprehensive view and understanding of the organization’s business plan to successfully map, evaluate, embrace, and communicate evolutions in the IT landscape.
“Many agencies struggle to get data faster, keep it up-to-date, and assure its accuracy. For security-related information, it is essential to have an effective means to protect the data,” noted Lucio de Risi, CEO, MEGA.
“A solid IT strategy delivery plan provides an important foundation for tracking and traceability of data, while serving as a powerful communication platform for multiple projects across agencies.”
In addition to providing integrated tools to help organizations rationalize and align major IT assets with IT strategy, MEGA helps enterprises organize technology resources with frameworks such as the Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF 2.0).
Using MEGA solutions, agencies can gain other significant benefits:
- Leverage data to drive decisions and speed adoption
- Promote agency collaboration with a common, standardized language, both within and across agencies
- Address previously unsolvable problems and anticipate future business needs
- Improve consistency across all agency landscapes through a centralized repository
- Facilitate integration of multiple systems and technologies and become more transparent
