ACHIEVING INTEROPERABILITY

Free Your Data

True North Group offers training and planning support to state and county human service agencies seeking to develop and implement effective technology solutions. Ensuring interoperability of existing government data systems is critical for improving outcomes for clients, but the path to interoperability can be confusing. Agencies can connect existing siloed IT systems by using national data standards (such as NIEM) to unlock your data while maintaining the highest privacy and  security protections. We analyze existing IT systems, work with stakeholders to identify business needs and requirements, help you select appropriate IT vendors, and develop workable plans for implementation. We can help you translate your business needs to successfully implement your IT projects.
