Like many government entities, the state of Georgia is trying to use data more effectively in its decision-making. State agencies, for instance, have designated data stewards who are charged with overseeing data quality and availability. Data sharing is being driven by deployment of an integrated eligibility system for health and human services programs, says Georgia CIO Calvin Rhodes. He spoke about those developments and others in an interview from Government Technology’s Georgia Digital Government Summit.
