The Account Information Viewer retrieves and displays information on all federal government accounts displayed in the U.S. Budget. The application also allows federal government users to enter guidance and helpful remarks that aid in preparation of budget information.
What you will learn – * How budget information can be accessed by any federal agency person
* How to dynamically access content stored in legacy databases via Drupal
* How to control updating via external authentication (CAS)
There has been a lot of focus on Drupal as a content management system and platform for better serving citizens online. Drupal also has a lot of capabilities for helping government work better behind the scenes. This presentation will cover a variety of Drupal modules which relate to applications for use within an organization. From tools for better communication, identification of areas for improvement to building your own custom applications.
Walk through building a small application to track a process
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.
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.
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.
