Ohio released an RFP to build new data analytics systems Thursday that technology leaders hope will assist the state as it tackles some of its toughest issues.

Infant mortality, childhood hunger, opiate addiction, unemployment and school dropout rates were identified by the state as key challenges that could be addressed by the procurement. New systems are scheduled to begin construction in April, following a possible award in March. The new systems would help the state integrate data and services offered by more than 120 agencies, boards and commissions and use data spread across 1,600 computer systems.
