From utilizing maps to get to new places, to mobile banking, and keeping up with family and friends on social media, people are generating more data than ever before. In government, data is generated through its interaction with citizens, policies, and regulations. As the landscape stands, we are data rich, but information poor. Leveraging analytics can give insight into data, which will begin to tell a story about what is happening and can be used to predict outcomes. Michele’s big hairy audacious goal is to make citizens delighted with government again by using this data to tell a story. We are all citizens; we all have the ability to interact in this ecosystem. The time is now to make our communities better. Join Michele to learn about how data can be used in your community.
