An extensive initiative to modernize the legacy system at the Taxi & Limousine Commission, began during 2018. Working with the Director of Analytics, IT Chief and Director of Technology at Taxi & Limousine Commission, we were tasked to deliver a comprehensive strategy for the first phase of the modernization process. The solution needed to enhance the vision for a new modernized legacy system for the agency that would incorporate existing data, initial requirements, and outlined a roadmap before the IT request for proposal was sent to be published in 2021.
A secondary internal team goal for this initiative was to increase exposure of human centered design and implement user experience methods with units and high profile agency leads, so that we continue to demonstrate value of design in a government agency.
