As I type this, Steve Jobs is in San Francisco preparing to make another announcement about new consumer technology that will no doubt raise the stakes for how information and content is shared through the internet.
For local government, these announcements must be followed by a reasonable question: What does the technology mean for public administration? How can leading-edge user interfaces and hardware work to help government do its job faster and better?
At our recent local government user group, SunGard Public Sector presented a demo to explore just those topics. Using code from our new enterprise-wide software suite, ONESolution, our team built out a proof-of-concept demonstrating how technologies such as Microsoft’s Surface interface and Apple’s iPad can provide real-world benefit to city and county operations. View the demo below, and let us know if you have questions in the comments.
