Why Socrata for Federal Government

Strengthen Collaboration

Providing a central and secure data platform can increase trust and cooperation between departments. The Socrata for Federal platform leverages open architectures, open standards and open source to also engage external audiences for greater public transparency and increase inner-departmental efficiency.

Provide Insight

While data in its raw form has a multitude of uses, most people consume information differently. Socrata provides built-in visualization tools, interactive dashboards, web applications, and unique user experiences that help people to better understand the data in context of the issues it addresses.

Maximize Impact

Data can have a life after publication. Socrata’s scalable, secure, API-based data platform enables internal or external developers to innovate without having to build and maintain a data infrastructure on their own. This enables them to more easily use the data to develop solutions to real-world problems.

Leverage the Ecosystem

The Socrata platform supports the Open Data Network — a network of hundreds of federal, state, local, and NGO organizations and their published data. With this network, data can be federated to other relevant districts or government sites, enabling better collaboration and dissemination of information.
