HUD Puts Focus on Data Analytics for IT Modernization

Jeff Brody

The Department of Housing and Urban Development is deploying a Centers of Excellence approach to information technology modernization to simplify organizational operations such as financial management, Federal News Network reported Friday.

HUD’s IT modernization strategy spans across business process reengineering, cloud adoption, data analytics, chief information officer responsibilities and contact center operations. According to HUD CFO Irv Dennis, the department aims to implement a centralized data governance approach and establish a chief data analytics officer role to lead such operations.

“The trick right now is to get all of our key data in the other programs and our systems into this data warehouse, and then leverage our existing dashboard and build from there,” he said.

HUD is the second agency to deploy a CoE approach to IT modernization after the Agriculture Department.
