North Carolina Technical Architecture: A Working Model for States

North Carolina's Statewide Technical Architecture could provide some answers to states struggling to define their statewide architectures, according to P.K. Agarwal of California's Franchise Tax Board and chairman of the National Association of Information Resources Executives' Joint Technology and Procurement Work Group.

"I believe their approach to a statewide architecture is well thought out," he said. "It is at a high enough level that none of the line departments will feel constrained, yet it deals with providing a direction and statement of philosophy." You can visit the site at www.osc.state.nc.us/IRMC/ and then selecting Statewide Technical Architecture.
