Free Webinar: Local Gov Data Part 4: Best Practices

March 29, 2018
01:00 pm - 02:30 pm ET


Registration closed.


This is the fourth of four webinars designed to help local governments get a handle on the data they collect and manage.

The final webinar in the series will cover examples of how governments are using their data to improve efficiencies and effectiveness. Jennifer Robinson, Kay Meyer, and Tara Holland will discuss open government and how it is supported by open source and open data.  They will cover several ways data can be analyzed and visualized, including: big data such as millions of meter readings, fast data such as the streaming data that helps a government maintain its assets, complex data that can be used to solve problems such as recidivism, unstructured data that is collected by law enforcement, and transparent data used to inform citizens.

You and your staff will discuss the:

  • Value of open governance
  • Present use of open source by your organization
  • Opportunities and challenges with open data
  • Types of fast, big, complex, unstructured and transparent data used and produced by your organization
  • Importance of analyzing data to improve your organization’s effectiveness
  • The value of different visualizations for your staff and citizens


ICMA has partnered with SAS to develop the Smart Communities and Data Analytics Report to bring the power of data analytics and smart community practices to local governments worldwide. When activated, these practices help local governments make informed decisions across operational sectors such as public safety, energy, transportation, purchasing, public health, transportation, land use, water and wastewater, environmental quality, and more.                         

NOTE: This is part four of a four-part series. All sessions are free. Registration is separate for each session; you may register for any or all of these sessions.
