Mobile First Content Strategy
A mobile-first content strategy means designing website structure and content for mobile devices first, desktops second.

What is content strategy?
“Content strategy is the practice of planning for the creation, delivery, and governance of useful, usable content.”
- Kristina Halverson, Content Strategy for the Web

Why Mobile First?
Mobile first provides accessibility for more citizens.
• 39% Americans without college degrees only or mostly use the Internet on mobile devices
• 59% of Americans who make less than $30,000/year have no Internet access at home
• 30% of the U.S. users are mobile only or mostly mobile.
• Mobile users expect faster load times on slower devices

Responsive Design
The design and development of the website or application should respond to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation.

The result is a single website that responds to the device accessing it, restructuring content and layout to accommodate different screen sizes and orientation.
Oregon has focused on what matter's most to its residents
Existing Price Agreements
Brokered Capacity
Cloud and Collocation
Communications Special Procurement
Hardware - New!

Strategic Plan
Our strategy is designed to focus on what matters most to our statewide IT customers. It is the bridge between the state's most critical business problems and the service outcomes with the highest impact.
Our mission is to provide reliable, agile and flexible IT service choices while optimizing the state's IT investments.
Socializing our strategic plan.

IBM 3584 Tape Library

In cooperation with the State of Montana our data is replicated to disk at the remote site. This allowed us the elimination of 11 frames of our Automated Tape Library system. The last frame is scheduled to be removed in less than a year.
IT Service Management process maturity progress

Hosted Telephony
Will release any day

Services - Later This Summer

Network “ring”. POPs in 10 key cities. Fiber failure redundancy.
POPs in multiple location create a more competitive market for last mile
Redundant connections to the internet. 2 different providers out of 2 different cities
Reduce internet traffic with multiple redundant peering connections
Migrated to Metro Optical Ethernet (MOE) instead of Frame Relay for WAN connectivity. Benefits include: Speeds faster than Frame Relay, speeds that are more scalable than frame relay, less expensive then frame relay

State Wide Area Network
The John Day Fossil Beds National Monument of Eastern Oregon were formed over 35 million years ago by different volcanic eruptions and changing climate patterns.
Willamette Falls – 17th widest in the world (1,500 feet wide, 40 feet high - Second largest waterfall by volume in the country (Niagra is first)
CommVault Logical Infrastructure
2 backup generators with smart grid technology
We have partnered with the local electric company in such a way that when there is peak demand on the electrical grid, THEY can fire up our generators . One powers the data center floor, taking the SDC power consumption OFF the grid, the other feeds power INTO the grid. Both approaches yield in additional power available to the general consumer. In exchange for this, the electric company performs monthly tests with the generators, performs all required maintenance on the generators, and keeps the fuel in the 1000 gallon tank fresh.
One z114 Mainframe
Located in Helena, MT Data Center
Used for DR purposes
In the last 2 weeks of January 2014, a very successful DR test was completed in cooperation with the Oregon Department of Transportation. During the test ETS was able to provide the operating system to customers in a matter of hours instead of days or weeks under previous DR strategies. This was a huge accomplishment and was a major milestone in ETS providing a resilient infrastructure for its customers and the citizens of Oregon.
Mainframe software consolidation money savings equaled approximately 1.8 million dollars in savings.
