    Hamilton's Enterprise GIS Roadmap: How to Measure Progress and Report Successes

    The City of Hamilton is focused on enabling staff and citizens with accurate, current and reliable data. How does an organization share the tools to analyze, visualize and report their decisions, keeping everyone informed, and maintaining trust in the underlying data? Through collaborative planning and measuring Objectives and Key Results (OKRs). The webinar will demonstrate how Hamilton has measured their current state of GIS and data maturity, identified their organization's main challenges, planned their approach to solve those challenges, and will present their progress through a data-driven enterprise roadmap.

    And, as Hamilton's geospatial program progresses, so does the underlying maturity model and methods that continue to adapt to the rapid evolution of GIS within organizations. This evolution will be discussed in the context of new variants of the maturity model whose measures and strategic insights will continue to be used to transform the City of Hamilton and others with data, integrations, business and location intelligence.  

    Presenters:  Matt Pietryszyn, GISP,  Supervisor, Spatial Solutions and Data Services, City of Hamilton and Paul Giroux, President, Mass Maturity/Slimgim

    Matt Pietryszyn, GISP, has been working at the City of Hamilton since 2019, helping to create a more collaborative, enterprise-wide GIS program. With nearly 20 years of municipal and private sector geospatial experience in various roles, Matt brings a broad perspective to organizations looking to implement geospatial solutions and optimize GIS services and data across the organization.

    Paul Giroux started his career working with at advanced technology and innovation centers in the late 90s and evolved through several roles in local government as a Web Developer, as Enterprise GIS Analyst/Administrator and as a Systems Supervisor leading a team tasked with transforming Water/Wastewater Operations.
