“Civic technologies provide the platform and tools to fuel government transformation, and this journey is just beginning.”
Civic tech aims to solve the problems facing citizens. With technology we can help government agencies engage their communities in new ways and modernize the way they serve citizens. This can be anything from voting automation to data access and transparency to crowdsourcing ideas for community improvement.
Civic tech is a growing area for state and local governments, as well as funding agencies and start-ups. We teamed up with the International Data Corporation (IDC) to develop a free report: “Civic Tech Fuels U.S. State and Local Government Transformation.”
The report estimates that U.S. civic tech market spending will reach $6.4 billion in 2015 in a space that will grow 14 times faster than traditional state and local government spending from 2013 to 2018. You can download the report here to learn more about civic tech and how it’s transforming citizen services.
