Digital Government from the White House

February 21, 2014
by Jacque Porte

Under the administration of President Barack Obama, the White House is making great strides towards digital government with the intent of providing seamless accessibility for citizens, whether they access information from their desktop PC or—as is increasingly becoming the case—from mobile devices. The President is quoted on the White House’s Digital Government Strategy website as saying, “I want us to ask ourselves every day: how are we using technology to make a real difference in people’s lives.”

The Strategy presents three objectives: to enable the American people to access high-quality digital government information and services anywhere, anytime, on any device; to ensure that that as the government adjusts to this new digital world, they seize the opportunity to procure and manage devices, applications, and data in smart, secure and affordable ways; and to unlock the power of government data to spur innovation across our Nation and improve the quality of services for the American people.

Local municipalities and schools certainly want to replicate these efforts in their own communities, but often they lack the means to do so. Here at IQM2, organizations can find the complete meeting management solution that will enable them to reach the same objectives outlined in the Digital Government Strategy.

The White House’s Strategy also includes an information-centric approach, which translates data from documents to open data and content that can be easily tagged and shared, a service that IQM2 also provides via a web portal that will allow citizens to comment publicly or privately on agenda items and search an unlimited database of your organization’s information. IQM2 also creates a platform of security and privacy, similar to the one outlined in the Strategy, to ensure that administrative users of the system can pick and choose precisely what information, permissions, and features they would like to be available to the public.

The Digital Government Strategy admits that this strategy “aims to be disruptive,” no doubt due to providing a platform that fundamentally shifts how government connects with and provides services to the American people. The changes would help to achieve a goal best expressed by Thomas Jefferson, in which all citizens become partners in building a better government, where “every man feels that he is a participator in the government of affairs.”

Of course, you could do all of this yourself, or you could enlist the help of IQM2 and our suite of MinuteTraq, MediaTraq, e-Boardroom, and BoardTraq. We are here to help you fulfill the same digital government strategy outlined at the White House by bringing live-streaming media, hyperlinked agendas, and a searchable database to your citizens, whether they are using a desktop PC, a tablet, or a smartphone.
