The Department of Homeland Security is looking to implement a new management system in an effort to consolidate the agency’s internal operations data into one platform, Federal News Radio reported Tuesday.
Jason Miller writes the DHS wants to unveil the Management Cube initiative in January 2014 and deploy data analysts who will work to identify trends and investment opportunities.
Keith Trippie, executive director of the enterprise system development office in DHS’ office of the chief information officer, told the station Management Cube tasks will focus on the private sector and investment analytics.
“We have a common platform that is now bringing disparate datasets from 12-to-15 different source systems. We have over 400 different views that have been created and that are now shared across the different lines of business executives and senior leadership as they see fit,” Trippie said to Federal News Radio.
DHS intends to import and process data over the next three months, he added.
