Event description: Data sharing between jurisdictions is complicated. Many systems are innately incompatible with each other -- even similar systems can have difficulty sharing when data itself is not identically structured. A data model is emerging that is readily available to make information exchange within your agency less expensive, more efficient, and faster---the Global Justice XML Data Model (GJXDM). Many law enforcement and justice agencies are planning or have already implemented projects using GJXDM, and state governments like Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Minnesota are adopting the GJXDM into their information infrastructures.

This online event assembled a panel of experts to present an accessible overview of the GJXDM. They highlighted best practices, lessons learned, and the latest implementation projects.

This webinar was moderated by Deborah Daniels with panelists Paul Embley, Paul Wormeli, and Col. Bart Johnson.
