Government-Focused Information Exchange Goes Live
A new information network is putting the collective wisdom of public sector IT agencies within reach of their colleagues and trying to solve some of the big problems that vex government.
A new online portal aims to ease the innovative process and empower collaboration by creating a place for government to share projects and best practices in a format adapted for use by all.
The government Digital Transformation Exchange (DTE), an online platform powered by ProudCity, went live on Jan. 30 and is believed to be the first such partnership in the nation.
It’s the brainchild of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF), an independent 501(c)(3) science and tech policy think tank, and a partnership with a collection of state and local governments. Founding DTE members include the states of Arizona, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Wisconsin as well as Montgomery County, Md., and the Illinois villages of Hinsdale and Wilmette.
