Open Sourcing Government Drupal Projects; or, why has no one else implemented the Federal IT Dashboard?

Attendance

We will report on what went right and what went wrong in the Federal governments effort to open-source the Drupal-based Federal IT Dashboard, which has not successfully engengered reuse/reimplementation by other governments.  

In this interactive session with audience participation we hope to devise a recipe through which future Drupal-based "apps" funded by government can more likely successfully be reused by many other governments, at diminishing marginal cost each time.

Adopting, Developing, and Deploying Drupal SItes for New York City & Other Local Governments

Attendance

Over the past year, we have been involved in building two Drupal sites, one CiviCRM implementation, and one Drupal technology assessment for three different New York City government agencies.  We'll review what we've learned about what it takes in a large local government like New York City to successfully pitch, develop, and deliver sites, and then ultimately empower civil servants to take them over.

See how Alfresco and Drupal can work together to solve the FOIA request problem

Attendance

Managing the vast quantities of information government entities need has become incredibly challenging.  When the Freedom of Information Act was enacted in 1966, no one considered the vast quantity of information that would need to be accessed or the complexity of keeping private data private, while making public data accessible.
Legacy content management systems weren’t designed to manage information with these demands.  Not to mention integration with other key systems.  This is where open standards based solutions like Alfresco and Drupal provide value.

Join us to learn how solutions based on these technologies can:

  • Create multiple methods to receive/create data
  • Properly identify and catalog data
  • Maintain proper security and control around all personal information
  • Develop approval processes for accepting and reviewing data
  • Redact personal information while sharing public data.
  • Access data where it is needed, when it is needed, and on the right device.
  • Interested but cannot attend at this time?
