Information Governance expert highlights improved constituent services and smart cities technology enabled by municipal data governance—in a new article from Messaging Architects

Municipal Data Governance
With the proper motivation, it’s fair to say that local government agencies have an opportunity to lead the way in demonstrating how to improve service delivery.

Messaging Architects, an eMazzanti Technologies Company and data compliance solution provider, discusses how municipal data governance leads to a brighter future in a new article on the Messaging Architects website.

The informative article first asserts that the motivation for municipal data governance is increasing due to private sector digital transformation. The author then presents the two areas most affected, constituent services and smart cities technology.

To illustrate the concept of smart cities, he lists several smart cities technologies. He concludes by sharing tips for getting started on a municipal data governance effort.

“With the proper motivation, it’s fair to say that local government agencies have an opportunity to lead the way in demonstrating how to improve service delivery,” stated Greg Smith, Vice President of Services Delivery at Messaging Architects.

Below are a few excerpts from the article, “Municipal Data Governance Leads to a Brighter Future.”

Motivation Increasing for Municipal Digital Transformation

“Usually short on resources and budget, and constrained by legacy applications and aging infrastructure, municipal governments historically lacked the ability and motivation to pursue digital transformation initiatives. However, the digital transformation happening all around them in the private sector is creating the motivation for change.”

Improved Constituent Services

“The digital transformation happening in municipal government today falls primarily within the areas of constituent services and the “smart cities” movement. Residents want the ability to pay their utilities online, report graffiti from their device, and easier ways to interact with local officials and staffers.”

Smart Cities Technology

“Public data sources: To ensure the safety and security of residents, agencies prevent crime by accessing multiple data streams, including social media and crowd-sourced information.”

“Smart street lighting: Using motion sensors, streetlights shine brighter when movement is detected, signaling the approach of traffic or where pedestrians walk.”

Municipal Data Governance Powers a Brighter Future

According to the article, increased efficiency makes municipal governments better stewards of resources, including tax dollars. An improved quality of life makes the city more appealing to residents and businesses, increasing tax revenue.

Municipalities stand to gain much if they collect and manage data well. Effective data governance is the key to unlocking numerous benefits leading to a brighter municipal future for residents, elected officials and staff. The data governance experts at Messaging Architects help civic leaders unlock that future.
