Data and Government: Connecting with Citizens

HOW DATA CONNECTS

Data is Connecting Governments with Citizens


Governments rely on advanced technologies to drive real-time communications with its citizens and address issues and challenges that can affect social and economic change. They have an obligation to remain accessible, connected, and accountable to the public, and rely heavily on digital services and communications to make that happen.

Through AI and machine learning, data analytics delivers more immediate and actionable insights. Insights can predict traffic congestion or improve task flows, sort data more efficiently, and even facially recognize citizens - all leading to better decisions, smarter public services, and operational efficiencies that improve citizen relations, safety, and quality of life.

The fact that data is growing came as no surprise to even the newest of IT personnel, but the rate at which that data is growing is catching even the most veteran IT professionals off guard. This is especially true in the IT departments for state and local governments who, thanks to the need to store new types of digital assets for record lengths of time, are facing a data epidemic in their facilities. The challenge is that these agencies have limited budget dollars to provide their IT departments to tackle these problems. State and local government IT needs an innovative approach to cost effectively deal with the problem.
