Led by the Chief Technology Officer, the goal of the Chief Technology Office (CTO) is to champion proven industry technology trends that can transform state government services to its citizens and employees. These technologies can deliver higher efficiency, and reduce cost. With an ever-changing technology landscape, it is imperative to have alignment between business and technology strategies and priorities.
To achieve these outcomes, the CTO has established the Vermont Enterprise Architecture Framework (VEAF) which is rooted in industry best practices. The VEAF gives business leaders the tools and language to articulate their needs in common terms while Enterprise Architecture (EA) artifacts, processes, standards, and principles drive repeatable application, information, and technical architectures. The State of Vermont EA staff works closely with program leadership, project managers, business analysts, technical professionals, and the Enterprise Project Management Office (EPMO) to ensure solid decision making in the selection, standardization, economies of scale, and sustainability of technologies.
