  • A New Way of Governing We ’ re at an inflection point in business – and in government. In a world where citizens are tethered to their mobile devices and where social media and networks provide real-time information, it is technology-- not political forces-- driving the change. Citizens are looking for around-the-clock access to government officials and the services they offer wherever and whenever it is convenient for them.
  • We ’ re at a unique point of convergence, with three factors coming together - social media, ubiquitous mobile access, and a full embrace of the Cloud - that make evolution toward the new way of governing possible.
