Data Center Optimization Initiative

DIS is tasked with developing a plan to maximize the capacity of the state’s data center assets, unify the IT infrastructure to better streamline state government, reduce costs and energy consumption and  improve service delivery and efficiency across executive branch agencies. 

This important, multi-phase initiative launched June 29, 2017. Its long-term strategic mission is to:

  • Help ensure that sensitive citizen and government data, managed and maintained by the state, is housed in a highly secure location, 
  • Strengthen the security of state IT operations, 
  • Create a more robust statewide cybersecurity program and 
  • Enhance the state’s continuity of operations and disaster recovery capabilities
