HiSoftware Inc. (http://www.hisoftware.com), a leading provider of software, services and on-demand solutions that monitor and optimize Web content governance, quality and regulatory compliance, announced today it has released a new white paper, Gov 2.0: Promoting Inclusive, Open, and Transparent Government through Technology. The white paper, co-authored with Microsoft, serves as a guide for government agencies looking to meet Gov 2.0 requirements for open and transparent government using technologies like Microsoft SharePoint Sever, while balancing regulations for accessibility and privacy compliance.

“This is an important white paper for any agency that wants to achieve the administration’s goals around Gov 2.0 while understanding and articulating the business case for using technologies like SharePoint and HiSoftware Compliance Sheriff,” said Teresa Carlson, Vice President, Microsoft Federal. “The paper offers detailed strategies and guidance on how organizations can specifically meet these requirements.”

Rob Sinclair, Chief Accessibility Officer, said, “The Trustworthy Computing Group at Microsoft is committed to providing resources, like this white paper, that assist governments in understanding how our technologies can assist them in making their computing environment both safer and easier to use.”

Gov 2.0: Promoting Inclusive, Open, and Transparent Government through Technology takes an in-depth look at how the mandate across government to create a participatory, transparent and collaborative environment and to implement Gov 2.0 strategies creates a balancing act with compliance. Balancing the two often conflicting requirements can create a challenge if not managed properly. The white paper explores how government agencies can meet their obligations to provide citizen-centered government solutions while at the same time maintaining their statuary and regulatory compliance requirements by making effective technology and policy decisions.

Dana Louise Simberkoff, Vice President, Public Sector for HiSoftware, stated, “This white paper is a must-read for any government agency looking not only for strategies, but also solutions that will assist them in implementing a sound Gov 2.0 strategy.”
