Data Modernization Implementation Planning

CDC’s Data Modernization Plan User Guide helps jurisdictions identify and document each component of a high-level data modernization strategy. It provides guidance on several critical components of a successful data modernization implementation (DMI) plan, which include:

  • DMI Plan Overview
  • DMI Plan Details
  • Governance Framework
  • Communication Plan
  • Enterprise Risks and Issues
  • DMI Plan Monitoring and Review

The Data Modernization Planning Template is a spreadsheet that assists jurisdictions with developing their data modernization roadmap.
