CMS Selection Guide: State & Local Government Edition
The doctrine of open government, or opengov, holds that citizens have the right to access the documents and proceedings of the government to allow for effective public oversight.
State and local governments are embracing this open government initiative. They are providing government information online–including via smartphone–ranging from access to agency directories, maps, travel data, polling places, lottery numbers, and news. Digital, and especially mobile, government communications have taken on new importance in the role of public safety.
State and local governments are finding their legacy proprietary systems do not have the required functionality to meet these new demands and are seeking new Content Management Systems, or CMS. This ebook provides some insights into how to go about choosing a CMS that will deliver on the promise of open government.
