CA Technologies Announces Partnership Extension with Louisiana
CA Technologies announced the continuation of its partnership with the State of Louisiana’s Office of Technology Services’ Enterprise Architecture project, which aims to employ identity and access management solutions across the state’s government organizations. “Facing a challenging procurement process, budget restraints and federal mandates, we knew from the beginning that we needed to develop a system that not only works today for one agency, but would work for multiple agencies for years to come,” said Matthew Vince, chief design officer for the State of Louisiana Office of Technology Services. “We also knew that, ultimately, for the system to succeed, it needed to be both secure and easy to use.”
“The Louisiana Enterprise Architecture project is a case study in smart government IT planning, design, and implementation,” said Mary Lou Prevost, vice president of State and Local Government and Education Programs at CA Technologies. “We are proud to support the effort, and excited for future efforts that will provide secure government services for all of the state’s 4.6 million citizens.”
