Innovation is thriving in today’s cities, counties and regions. From education and citizen engagement, to public safety and infrastructure management, local governments are tapping emerging technologies to create new services and capabilities. Many localities are appointing chief innovation officers and chief data officers to identify and guide these solutions. Cloud, mobility, data analytics, Internet of Things (IoT) and other technologies not only offer myriad opportunities to spark innovation, but also empower individual agencies and programs to take initiative in developing solutions aimed at improving government services and efficiency.
