State Data Center Projects - Customer Readiness

Implementation of Governor’s Shared Services
On February 10, 2009 Governor Gregoire issued Governor’s Directive 09-02 directing state agencies to provide full assistance and support in the development and implementation of a “shared services” model to lower costs and improve service.

SDC readiness began with projects that prepared the SDC facility, network core, and security infrastructure to support migrations. The next set of projects will focus on migrating security, storage, and servers that support CTS services. The migrations will be coordinated in a collaborative approach both internally and externally with our customers. Agency Implementation Coordinators (AICs) have been identified by each of the customers to facilitate awareness and readiness for each impacted service.

Documents are provided below to inform AICs and support as we plan for and migrate equipment and services from the current state data center in OB2 to the new State Data Center (SDC).
