Troux Helps California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation Reduce Complexity, Control Costs and Speed Decision-Making

Case Study Shows How California's Largest State Department Used Troux's Enterprise Portfolio Management Solution to Better Align IT and Business Goals

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Feb 12, 2014) -  The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR), one of the largest government correctional institutions in the country, has successfully implemented Troux's Enterprise Portfolio Management solution to consolidate IT assets, define enterprise standards, improve decision making and increase budgeting forecast accuracy.

Highlights

  • CDCR Director, Joe Panora, recognized early on that an Enterprise Architecture program could convert the Department's IT investments into a strategic differentiator, enabling the team to reduce spending, minimize risk and maximize agility.

  • Partnering with Troux allowed the EA team to access real-time analysis of asset life cycles across more than 8,000 data elements in order to improve procurement processes and increase budget forecasting accuracy.

  • With Troux, CDCR was also able to identify opportunities for improvement such as the consolidation of nine disparate mission-critical applications into four existing enterprise solutions, avoiding wasted effort and resources.

  • Going forward, CDCR is able to prevent the implementation of redundant applications using Troux's capabilities to align the Department's business functions to existing solutions.

Joe Panora, Director, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation: "Now that we have fewer one-off technologies and applications, our support staff is more efficient and can respond to more requests because they already have the skill set. We can now focus on training our IT staff for new technologies, brought as a result of new projects, which makes them more valuable. Our time to market with enterprise solutions is now dramatically reduced -- we are able to realize solutions much faster for the business."
