Government of Alberta Enterprise Architecture
The Government of Alberta Enterprise Architecture (GAEA) is a cross-government initiative to improve the management of information and communications technology resources. GAEA guides and incorporates input from all government departments to ensure government technology approaches are well designed and standardized. The benefits include eliminating duplication, better IT planning, compatible technology, improved access to programs and services for Albertans, and reduced costs to government.
ICT Service Coordination
The Alberta government is enhancing the way it currently manages, delivers and contracts the information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure services. Most Alberta government ministries have unique information and communications technology environments, resulting in a diverse inventory of servers, different desktop computing services, and a variety of local area networks.
The ICT Service Coordination Initiative, under the leadership of Service Alberta, aims to improve the coordination of these various systems to better manage the technology and control costs.
Moving toward a Service Coordination model is the most efficient and effective way to achieve maximum investment value, innovation and sustainability.
