During the opening keynote at the Accela Engage conference two weeks ago, I gave a sneak peek look at the upcoming Accela Open Data Platform. It was gratifying to see how that quick peek turned into the talk of the conference. During the weeklong conference, I had numerous agencies approach me asking when they can get their hands on our new Open Data Platform. Each person who approached me had the same thing to say: “What you have created is exactly what my agency needs and solves our current open data problems perfectly.” And just yesterday, our very own Maury Blackman discussed open data on NBC's Press:Here with Scott McGrew in a segment titled “ Bringing Government Data Online .” So, what exactly is it that Accela is up to and what is our strategy when it comes to Open Data? I answered these questions during a session on Open...

Today's guest blog post comes from Code for America , an Accela partner and attendee at Accela Engage: 2013 User Conference in San Diego this week: By Ashley Meyers, Development and Engagement Manager, Code for America A year ago, when I first met Maury Blackman, CEO of Accela , and Kris Trujillo, then senior software architect (since promoted to Director of Software Development), we spoke about support for the 2013 Oakland Fellowship project . Little did I know that Accela would become a generous corporate sponsor of our 2013 programs and a partner on open data and data standards. Thanks to funding from Accela and other local match partners — including the Akonadi Foundation, the Kapor Center for Social Impact, the Donner Foundation, and Pandora — the three Oakland Fellows have thrived.

Return on Relationships: The Public CIO Summit and Center for Digital Government Industry Summit

b2ap3_thumbnail_publicCIO1.jpg
Ted Rubin is an influential guy in social media circles and his recent book, Return on Relationships , is based on the idea that relationships represent the most important currency in business. Ted focuses on relationships created through social media interactions, but, as I've come to realize, the concept is extraordinarily important in our industry in the bigger context of seeking out, investing in and building lasting relationships that ultimately drive success. I had the chance to participate in two marquee industry events over the past several weeks: the Public CIO Summit in Washington, DC, and the Center for Digital Government Industry Summit in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It’s very clear how tight-knit the community of public CIOs is. And, these were some of the highest quality industry events I’ve personally participated in, with real dialogue both amongst the CIOs as they shared best practices and approaches, and with those of...

See Accela Solutions in Action: Permitting and Inspection & Code Enforcement

Permitting and Inspection
Code Enforcement
Many government agencies have already discovered the benefits of moving their permitting and inspection and code enforcement processes online. Whether your agency serves a large metropolitan area or a small town , the benefits are the same: doing more with less—in less time. So, what can you do that you couldn’t do before? Government agencies can save time by accepting and managing permits online and capturing inspection results in real time. Developers, contractors and citizens can submit permit applications and review progress and make updates without making a trip to City Hall. Inspectors can interact with complete case information, access their daily inspection schedules, create new cases in the field, and submit inspection results remotely. Code officers can seamlessly create and manage cases in the field using their mobile devices—whether they are performing proactive sweeps or following up on issues reported by police, fire professionals, citizens or other community partners....
