We are accelerating access, adoption and use of data-driven technologies and solutions that will positively impact the community, through NextGen Apps and Services. 

WE BELIEVE:

The quality of life of our region and its attractiveness to economic development is challenged by a range of complex social issues, many of which could be addressed through data-driven insights and fact-based solutions fueled by publicly available data.

  • Though many public agencies want to share the wealth of data they store, that data is often difficult to access across disparate digital and paper-based systems
  • Aggregating, making available and analyzing public data can enable the creation of the rich fact-based insights needed to solve a wide range of complex social issues
  • Inclusive citizen engagement in defining the issues to address through data and analytics will result in more impact and meaningful community outcomes
Programs

Our offerings are designed to enable lasting positive impacts on the region’s quality of life. They support the analysis of social issues, make productive use of data to improve organizations’ impact, and lead to civic improvements that support the attraction and retention of citizens and businesses in the region.
