Building a Mobile Government Strategy with GIS

While government at all levels has become more adept at using mobile technology and services for efficiency and communication, many organizations still lack a comprehensive mobile strategy. Mobile deployment and the data collected via mobile devices is often piecemeal, meaning use of it and the data gathered is siloed in different departments or dashboards, and not incorporated in an organization-wide workflow.

To discover how geographic information systems (GIS) technology, paired with a thoughtful mobile strategy, can transform state and local government services, GovLoop partnered with Esri, a leader in GIS, for this industry perspective. Keith Mann, State and Local Government Marketing Lead at Esri, provided insight on what a mobile strategy at the state and local government levels looks like, how governments can get there and how mobile, geo-enabled data can fundamentally shift the way cities, counties and states enable access to information.
