Maryland Builds Human Services Platform Starting with Data Integration
Many U.S. states are hampered by traditional technology silos and data barriers between agencies. Starting in 2017, the Maryland Department of Human Services initiated a cloud-based data repository and application platform for delivering social services to its residents – known as MD THINK. Using services including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), and Amazon Relational Database Services (RDS), agencies requiring application modernization to support mission-critical operations can migrate quickly and share data more seamlessly. In this session, we’ll hear from Maryland’s Chief Information Security Officer, John Evans, about how the state designed for security, scalability, and data integration and built a platform that already serves a third of Maryland residents (with bigger plans ahead!).
