Each government has different goals and objectives they are asked to deliver on each year and term. Our approach provides improved capabilities that enable you to better execute on those goals and objectives. The Socrata Implementation Methodology is the roadmap that we use to help governments manage their data in a scalable and sustainable way.

Socrata Implementation Methodology


eGovernment: eBaseline

At this stage, internal leaders are focusing on compliance and efficiency. They are building infrastructure and inter-agency sharing, with an eye on how data can drive constituent satisfaction.

Open Government: Experimental

Constituents and internal stakeholders start to see the value of data – and ask for more, leading to an increase in agency sharing and data availability. Governments start to realize the benefits of transparency and openness.

Data-centric Government: Conversational

By now a department has taken over strategic data management, and most public data is open by default. Greater internal data sharing is yielding improvements in efficiency and data-based decision making. Constituents become more engaged and see how their government is working for them.

Digital Government: Collaborative

Community members unite and engage with program leaders to bring the value of data to the public in a meaningful, collaborative way. Free-flowing data leads to richer discover, analytics, and innovation -transforming the way government serves constituents.

Smart Government: Innovative

When a cycle of data-based innovation and optimization becomes predictable and repeatable, the public and private sector are united by using data to make the community a better place to live, work, and play. Connected data is at the core of strategy, execution, and analysis.
