Evidence-based governing and citizen-responsive services are essential for today’s state and local officials. We demand from our leaders informed decisions that increase cost-effectiveness and enhance public life. Across the country, governments are increasingly harnessing data and emphasizing performance to achieve these goals, while partnering with each other and the private sector to better understand and apply the available information.
At this event, Route Fifty explored the data-centric strategies and tactics used to inform decision-making, enhance the citizen experience with government services, and increase community engagement.
This opening keynote will talk about the power of data as a strategic asset in state and local government.
