By now, many public employees are aware of FI$Cal: the partnership between the Department of General Services, Department of Finance, State Treasurer’s Office and State Controller’s Office to modernize the financial operations and systems of the state of California.
FI$Cal implementation has started for state departments, agencies and commissions, and it’s happening whether they are ready or not. The FI$Cal partnership is doing its part to educate agencies on FI$Cal and what needs to happen before implementation.
Although the FI$Cal solution is going to provide a streamlined system and make operations in the state easier, it means a lot of change and adjustment upfront.
But unless teams fully understand the change and are technically ready, the solution may be more of a headache than a help.
While ultimately the FI$Cal solution is going to provide a streamlined system and make operations in the state easier, it means a lot of change and adjustment upfront.
This project has a lot of intricacies – and M Corp understands the issues as a legacy modernization company, and because we were part of the Legacy Systems and Services Team for FI$Cal during the first wave. We are uniquely qualified to help agencies to prepare, and we know they will need to take a few steps to get ready for the changes coming with FI$Cal.
It’s not necessarily easy, but it all comes down to project readiness – something we consider absolutely essential to maximize the success of any IT project. From defining user roles to setting teams up with a road map that they can follow during this transition, M Corp is available to guide teams through FI$Cal implementation.
