Socrata is one of the “Mixing in Perfect Harmony” sponsors at the ELGL & ICMA event in Seattle. You may remember that Socrata was also an #ELGL14 sponsor. Let’s take a few minutes to catch up with Socrata.
Socrata is a world leader in cloud solutions for open data and data-driven governments. Socrata is used by organizations focused on democratizing access to public sector data.  Basically, it’s Socrata’s mission to unleash the power of data to improve the world around us. It does this by encouraging Socrata users to not only share their data, but to use that data to change the world.
When Hurricane Sandy unleashed its power on the the Big Apple, New York City used its Socrata-powered open-data portal to shared up-to-date information about evacuation zones, shelters, and food centers. Developers then created dynamic digital maps for NYC citizens to help them through the storm. Other localities currently using Socrata? Kansas City, MO, Chi-Town, IL, Boston, MA, NOLA, SanFran, heck, even Canada is getting in on this action!
Socrata knows you work hard to collect and generate your data, so it works hard to share it for you. Using Socrata’s ambitious open-data platforms allows users across the world to share, collaborate, and innovate while remaining efficient and transparent. Get on board with Socrata, unleash the power of data!
