The OCME is at a critical juncture as it relates to the way agency data is managed and utilized. It employs a legacy MS SQL-based application, Case Management System (CMS) that has been customized and continues to evolve.

Additionally, a new mobile application with a MS SQL backend is under development and must be integrated with the CMS application.
The agency wishes to develop extensive and customizable web dashboards for real-time situational awareness as well as long term data analytics. This new position will be expected to advise and work with the Chief Information Officer to assist with the overall vision and strategy as it relates to managing data sets and yielding quantifiable, useful analytics.
