Trending Up to Innovation
#elections, #partisanship, #gridlock and #fiscalcrisis are keywords that have dominated online feeds about state and local government of late, and much of the offline conversations as well.
What we’re not hearing much about in 140 characters or less are #transformation, #innovation, and #government modernization.
If you want some thoughtful analysis and case study examples of what is trending today in e-government, check out “Trending Up: Lessons in Applied Innovation from State and Local Government.”
This is a really useful new study from the Center for Digital Government (which, as you know, is a national research and advisory institute on information technology policies and best practices).
‘Trending Up” breaks it down:
• #Data, #Data, Everywhere —Harnessing the most powerful four letter word on the planet
• Forecast is #Cloudy —Expectations rise as conversation shifts from “Why cloud?” to “Why not cloud?”
• #Network and Mobility —Computing moves to the palm of the hand
• Paving the #oldcowPath —Moving from process automation to modernization
• Improved and #Smarter — Embedding intelligence into our infrastructure
• Digital Attacks, or waging #Cyberwar —Cybersecurity no longer the cost of doing business
Each topic includes case stories that offer replicable lessons in applied innovation, including insights and best practices from six Infor/Lawson customers: city of Las Vegas; municipality of Anchorage, Alaska; Pierce County, Wash.; Rancho California Water District; city of Bradenton, Fla.; and city of Sparks, Nev.
So as we make our way up the higher rungs of P.K. Agarwal’s Ladder (operational progression toward e-government), this study offers a step up.
