The future of Open Government is transparency, efficiency & civic engagement. But there are challenges (and opportunities) presented on the way to realizing this vision, including:
- How can technology enable governments to transition to this future, and how will government organizations need to evolve in process?
- How to take the Gov’t beyond just sharing data & drive more use of open data?
- How to enable “Gov’t as a Platform” to drive a vibrant ecosystem of citizen-ready applications (not just data dumps)?
- How to empower citizens to use & add value to open data apps via familiar web, mobile & social media channels?
Presented at the webinar organized by the Open Government Canada Network, I explore these topics & share my ideas (and thoughts) as to how to address these questions.
Regardless of technology it's built upon, a future Open Gov Platform will have specific properties, and within this deck I share what such a platform may look like, and what technologies will play a pivotal role in bringing better efficiency, innovation & more citizen engagement.... while also enabling effective listening and learning mechanisms to harness the “knowledge of the masses”.
