We predicted a fair year for 2015 will be a transitional year in government transparency and the use of information technology in the public sector. There will be more “open data” at a time of a transparency backlash but few organizations will make productive use of “government as platform.”
On the positive side, we were right that 2015 was a good year for smart cities. And, a transition of government IT projects to more modern technology and processes. That included leveraging big data techniques.
Our focus at FreeBalance over the past decade has been on enabling good governance through fiscal transparency. We see a trend of moving beyond transparency to deep citizen engagement.
