All of these elements of growing connectivity have the potential to significantly increase productivity, streamline operations and enhance service levels to citizens and stakeholders. But these benefits are only one side of the story. The added complexity of the new eGovernment environment also creates many new challenges, as government agencies search for effective ways to secure and control access to the rapidly growing number and variety of gateways to their ecosystems.
Increased access to data and more channels of communication have given citizens renewed civic power. Public-sector agencies must be just as responsive as any other enterprise with which citizens interact. If you’re an optimist, imagining the results of a hyperconnected citizenry is exciting. As long as government is responsive, greater citizen involvement could help reduce problems that plague modern society, including poverty, disenfranchisement and even crime.
For many of us, the term “smart city” conjures up images of sensors
collecting data about everything from traffic patterns to energy use.
It’s common for government leaders to think, “That’s not for us.
We’re not there yet.” But if your organization is collecting data of any
kind, you are in a position to use that data to create a smarter city for

Passed on May 9, 2014, the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA Act) legislation requires federal agencies to report all expenditures—grants, loans, and contracts—in order to provide American citizens and policy makers better visibility into federal spending. At first glance, new federal requirements— which are scheduled to go in effect May 2017—can seem like imposed obligations with unknown benefits to the implementers. However, wise agencies and early adopters recognize how to transform this new compliance obligation into an opportunity to advance their federal agency by becoming more data driven. The Federal Government maintains vast amounts of data, and the DATA Act establishes data standards and sharing protocols that will help agencies exploit the benefits of data mining and analytics.
Citizens rely on government social services programs to help combat poverty, disease, disabilities, and economic and physical hardships. Governments are also tasked with providing healthcare, security, and infrastructure services.
California is the world’s eighth-largest economy, and its IT challenges exceed those of many national governments. That was particularly true during the budget crisis that began in 2008. In the face of severe budget cutbacks, state agencies needed to radically change the way they operated to keep meeting their missions to serve citizens.
The State of California sets a new standard for IT with Shared Services. Learn how the California Natural Resources Agency harnessed the power of cloud computing to reduce IT capital costs by 42% and speed up service delivery by 70%.
This paper examines how the increasingly ubiquitous connectedness of our IoE world can help provide public safety and justice agencies with new opportunities to meet and overcome the challenges they face. It specifically examines this topic through applications in law enforcement, emergency response, corrections, courts, and national security, and shows how IoE can help transform agencies to better protect citizens and make communities safer. Finally, this paper will provide recommendations on strategy implementation to enable agencies to take the next steps.
Cities around the globe are undertaking “smart” initiatives that result in better services for citizens, a more attractive city for visitors and businesses, a better place to work, and greater cost savings.
"Companies have complied with data protection directives and regulations for more than two decades. But the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), an overhaul of existing European Commission data protection legislation, aims to strengthen and unify those laws for EU citizens. Primary GDPR objectives are to give citizens back control over their personal data and simplify the regulatory environment for international business. For organizations already compliant with Directive 95/46/EC, what do they need to do from a technology perspective to comply with GDPR?
Read this solution brief to see how CA can help you with GDPR compliance."
"GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation has just been signed into law and enacts new rules and stiff penalties for any company who misuses or loses European Union (EU) citizens’ personal data. This sweeping legislation has expanded the definition of personal data and puts IT and testing departments on high alert to safeguard personal data, across development and testing environments. Test data management, the process of obtaining and distributing test data for development teams, takes on greater urgency as the GDPR deadline looms.
Solid test data management practices will be key to overcoming compliance roadblocks and avoiding huge fines associated with GDPR. Utilizing new ways in which test data can be generated, distributed and managed will be pivotal role to meeting this regulation.
In this webcast, Vanson Bourne and CA will present the results of their highly anticipated GDPR readiness survey of 200 corporations in North American and the UK. Join us to learn more about:

Communities rely on their local policemen and policewomen to keep them safe, protect their property and preserve the peace. But few citizens really understand the dangers that officers face every day, especially patrolling and answering calls in vehicles or on foot. While their training provides them with tactics and procedures, situations and individuals are unpredictable.
From accidents to health emergencies, domestic violence to theft and assaults, police must perform in high-stress, volatile environments and make the right decisions in seconds. And in today’s digital world, everything they do may be recorded and posted online.

A growing urban population is putting increasing pressure on infrastructures – and creating a bigger challenge for governments to meet their safety, road performance and cost saving targets. Modern location mapping platforms are growing in accuracy and capabilities – giving governments a way to provide real-time, personalized and integrated mobility services to citizens.
In Ovum’s Location Platform Index, 2H17, HERE has been ranked a leader based on overall reach and completeness – and the leader for platform completeness. In this report, you can see exactly how we measure up in the market against some of the leading competition.
According to the United Nations, on average, more than 200 million people were affected and more than 70,000 were killed by natural disasters annually. Given the fact that one of the primary responsibilities of government is to protect the public and minimize the effects of such calamities, citizens now demand that public-sector safety organizations be proactive, and respond promptly and effectively to all types of crisis situations, including catastrophes, terror events, and threats to critical infrastructure.
To effectively respond to these challenges, public safety agencies must be able to rely on secure networks with integrated voice, video, and data capabilities. With these networks and their associated assets, agencies can obtain more timely and accurate information, enhancing situational awareness and improving response times.

The General Data Protection Regulation(GDPR) was approved and adopted by the EU Parliament in April 2016 with the goal to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches. What is the scope of the GDPR? How does it impact your organisation? This white paper guides you so your organization can meet the needs of GDPR.
The General Data Protection Regulation1 is a European Union regulation with the full title of ‘Regulation on the protection of natural persons with regard to the
processing of personal data and on the free movement
of such data, which repeals Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation)’.
It’s the first comprehensive overhaul and replacement of European data protection legislation in over twenty years and could be the most significant regulatory framework
to hit organizations since Sarbanes-Oxley in 2002. Its purpose is to replace the varying implementations across Europe of the earlier EU Data Protection Directive with a single harmonized EU regulation. The intended outcome is a standardized set of expectations about how an organization must manage and protect personally identifiable information on employees, clients and other applicable data subjects.
Any organization that holds data on EU citizens, regardless of where it is domiciled, within the EU or otherwise, is in sco
