Last Month's Spotlight: CoVERED

The Office of Data Governance and Analytics has developed the Commonwealth of Virginia Entity Resolution for Enterprise Data (CoVERED). This solution ingests two data streams separating the attributes that identify individuals (PII) from those that characterize the government services they receive by leveraging partnerships with executive branch agencies and other organizations through the Commonwealth Data Trust. The goal of CoVERED is to drive impact through insight, not identification.
