  • Hi I’m Nik Garkusha
  • By Day – I run a team responsible for Open Source strategy &amp; Open Gov initiatives at Microsoft CanadaBy Night – I run a community organization OpenHalton, helping to bring Open Data to the Halton Region
  • I’ll be sharing some thoughts on what anOpen Government Platform of the Future would look like, Platform – in the broadest sense, the foundational components of an evolved / transformed governmentwhat are some of the challenges on the road to this futureAnd how IT / technology can help bring this future closer to reality
  • We’ll talk about…
  • First – let’s talk about Open Gov as a movement – it’s WW and it’s…
  • The participatory budget in the city of Icapui&apos; (Brazil). It is an example of transparency, everyone can see it. But it is also decided in a participatory way, all the citizens are free to participate and bring their points and priorities.LEFT – where the money comes fromRIGHT – what the money is spent on
  • It’s happening across Canada
  • Data…
  • We started to see that there’s a clear evolution from DATA
  • We started to see that there’s a clear evolution from DATA
  • My take on the evolution of Open Gov initiatives/sites: from Transparency:OpenCongressopenParliamentHow’d the Vote.CA
  • ….to participation/engagement….Townhall-type sites: America Speaking Out initiativeCitizenFactory / Apathy Is Boring – MySociety .ORG in the UK
  • …To the “Collaboration” inititiatives, where citizens have a more active role as drivers (vs participants) of the initiatives.
  • Organic crowdsourcingExtends to gov20City of niagara falls, ONCity of Nanaimo – parks N rec (@NinjaMeg) example of crowdsourcing image / voting for an activity guide
  • First – let’s talk about Open Gov as a movement – it’s WW and it’s…
  • It became OSS does not equal MS
  • It became OSS does not equal MS
  • Our Challengeof today: Gov&apos;t approach Open Gov and Open Data initiativesin silosThese initiatives are at the edge -- first to go (Data.gov)Gov&apos;t has to change - at its coreOpen data needs to be at its core Platforms &amp; technology that support gov&apos;t today -- need to have open data at their CORE
  • Efficiencies for EXTERNAL requests (50% less requests as reported by Dave Wallace, CIO of Toronto)
  • Helping get rid of the silos, and helping build the Open Government Platform of the future.Transforming – creating connections, from silos
  • Efficiencies for EXTERNAL requests (50% less requests as reported by Dave Wallace, CIO of Toronto)
  • C #1:Community --- the changing the relationship between the gov’t and the citizensJanice LaCouvee (Vancouver Island) concept of the Evolution of gov&apos;t - to address citizens need to BELONG Maslow&apos;s hierarchy of needs applied to Gov’tBefore:Institutions met basic needs of citizens. - education, police, fire, military, public transport, social services, town planning, water services, waste mgmt -- roman aqueductsNow: Called upon to help meet “the need to belong”The requires that Gov&apos;t is not only talking TO citizen communities, or Online communities or Open Gov communities, or Open Data hacker communities ---It needs to evolve to become PART of these communities &amp; foster these communities
  • Organic crowdsourcingExtends to gov20City of nanaimo, opendatabc, nanaimo IT workers - part of Relying on citizen communities requires knowing how to:Empowering the culture of these communities (foster communities)Hosting hackathons, F&amp;B and venue --Socially – specific thingsSense – making
  • Working with Communities to “help them help you”:Like the:WhereDidItGo project by OpenDataBC that helps to visualize how BC’s taxes are being spent, orWaterly – knows about watering restrictions &amp; weather / rainfall information – helps make informed decisions about watering your lawnOpenHamilton project to visualize the Map of 2011 Federal Election results in Hamilton East Stoney Creek. (Color-coded by victor of polls)
  • Fostering use &amp; applications on top of the platformsTapping into App EcosystemFostering citizen Ready appsFostering Connected experience for citizensBe the foundation -- App store / marketplaceOther services that can use Gov&apos;t data: standards, APIs allow this to be seamless
  • First – let’s talk about Open Gov as a movement – it’s WW and it’s…
  • and our own OpenHalton-led project WardRep.ca - in partnership with OpenHamilton, OpenGuelph, OpenDataLondonIt mashes up Council &amp; City Ward informationand shows you this for an address in Guelph, London, Hamilton &amp; some parts of HaltonThis can be an “application asset” for any city that has wards or just wants to provide an easier way to identify / share info on councilors
  • Together,APIs and Open Standards have the potential to enable the 2-way data exchangewith processes to both expose the open data feeds, andWorkflows to capture the feedback/meta-data/changes back from citizens Creating RICH ecosystem of citizen-ready applications which can be both COMMUNITY- BUILT &amp; GOVERNMENT-BUILT (or a MIX)
  • Community of Citizens – who are driving “content” &amp; Crowdsourcing that infoCollaboration – between Gov’t &amp; Community, made possible by processes and workflows to Capture Knowledge that was Crowdsourced --Connected Experience – technology &amp; systems powered by open standards &amp; APIs (like Open 311) that brought all of the parties, content, bits &amp; pieces in this exchange together
