IDEx is a 21-agency effort under the leadership of the Indiana Department of Homeland Security that includes local, state, and federal agency participation. By using a range of Global-supported solutions, including the Global Reference Architecture, Global Federated Identity and Privilege Management framework, and National Information Exchange Model, the initiative connects disparate justice and public safety systems’ data, leveraging existing investments for enhanced decision making and increased public safety. Because the planning, design, and initial capital investment were grant funded, IDEx exemplifies how a state can use federal support to initiate a project resulting in immediate and long-term cost savings and efficiencies. This webinar provides insights about the value of Global participation and use of Global tools, and need for a project champion in justice information sharing projects; and discusses the IDEx project, emphasizing leveraging of Global solutions, the importance of the principle of “reuse,” the IDEx Return on Investment ROI report, and how enhanced information sharing capabilities were critical in responding to spring storms that devastated Indiana.
Speakers: Thomas Wyss, IN State Senator and Global Representative from National Conference of State Legislators; and Jason Hutchens, Director of the Planning Division, IN Department of Homeland Security.
