Graph: CWDS Digital Services Delivery, Sandbox

Later this year, CWDS plans to launch a “sandbox” for the public to see features in the new system.  While the child welfare system can only be accessed by authorized personnel whose job is to protect children, the sandbox will give the public a view into the new system using demonstration data.

Below is a chart that shows the delivery cycle for software features deployed into production.  The project’s eight modules will be launched in stages, with ongoing enhancements to be deployed on the modern infrastructure that will offer a vastly improved user experience.

The blue boxes on the left side of the graph represent the research, design and development of products in partnership with Core Counties , on behalf of users across the state.   The green boxes represent finished code that has been deployed.

As the project gets ready to deploy software to the counties, each county will have its own implementation lead to guide and support implementation readiness activities in the areas of project management, communications, data cleansing, organizational change management (OCM), staff training, and technical readiness.
