Government isn’t usually known for its innovation, but the Town of Cary, North Carolina, is helping to change that perspective. The Town is embarking on journey that puts the citizen in the center of everything it does to build new services. The goal is to connect and engage with the community where they are, with the technology they use every day -- in their homes, cars and in their pockets.
Building on affordable platforms in use today, the Town of Cary has created an Amazon Alexa skill and utilizes Waze and text messaging to help its residents. Learn about the Town’s vision from its "gadget girl" Mayor Pro Tem and its CIO about their experiences on this journey, including the good, the bad, the unexpected, and what's next.
