Government as a Platform: Open Government Data, the Millineal’s Movement

I have explained Government as a Platform multiple times to myriads of folks.  I think Tim O’Reilly has done a very good job in this video of explaining it clearly.

The challenge is now organizing the community.  And the challenge now is that the community is not just in the US as the video sort of suggests.  The opportunity now is to create Government as a Platform opportunities worldwide.  Instead of focusing on the developed world, imagine if we focused on lesser developed areas in need of a solid governmental platform.  What if we could build open data movements globally that would allow for transparency in global agriculture prices.  What if we could create efficient transportation systems in places like Jakarta, increasing their national productivity and growing their economy based upon, partially, governmental efficiency.  What if we targeted billions of dollars of aid at opening data to the masses of developers in India, China, US, Europe that care deeply but have no data to work with to add to the solution.

I speak about change all the time.  This kind of change, its time has come.

Matt Miszewski has been a leader of incredible teams, that accomplished unbelievable goals - together. From rebuilding an enterprise technology strategy from the ground up as Chief Information Officer of the State of Wisconsin to driving a struggling global sales and marketing team to live beyond their potential and helping take their stock from $45/sh to over $110/sh, I have been honored to take on huge challenges and beat them by building collaborative and high performing teams. I was proud to be a regular speaker on Digital Realty's earnings call each quarter and being able to brief and advise the Board of Directors each quarter. Focusing on our shareholders needs while coupling that focus with the needs of our top customers was the combination the street was searching for and our increase in equity value proves the effort worthwhile. Our focus on total leasing costs, net present value of long term leases, closing the gap on cash performance and elimination of stagnant inventory helped to drive a stalled stock. Most proud of standing up a revenue engine that will be used for decades including a renewed global salesforce, inside sales expertise, demand generation focus, new global Partners and Alliances program, sales operations team and a heightened focus on connecting lead development to sales outcomes (including a new social marketing program, AR/PR, digital presence, brand identity refresh, SEO/SEM and a regular campaigning process). Combining decades of technology leadership with this commercial success creates an incredible package to unleash revenue and hack growth for companies from any industry out there.
