The Enterprise Performance Life Cycle (EPLC) guideline (see Related Files below) provides a framework for state agencies to manage their information technology investments in order to achieve consistently successful outcomes that maximize alignment with enterprise-wide and agency-specific goals and objectives. By managing and governing its investments from an enterprise perspective, Georgia will be in a better position to take advantage of economies of scale, common needs, data sharing and alignment to overall business strategies.
The EPLC framework applies to all state agency information technology investments and initiatives, including but not limited to new projects, major enhancements to existing applications, steady state systems, new Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) product acquisitions, Hosted or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions and infrastructure projects. IT investments or initiatives include desktop and laptop computers, application software and computer systems interconnected through statewide networks.
The guideline describes the three processes and seven stages of the EPLC and the associated responsibilities, exit criteria, deliverables and reviews associated with each process and stage.
