Data creates transparency. Using Cloud plus Big Data & Analytics, Miami-Dade County is reinventing the way municipal government works. Making data visible, accessible, and actionable can help the county to crack cold cases, reduce water waste and design better public transportation.

Today, municipalities and citizens more than ever need to understand their patterns of behavior and how to change them. Whether it is in water consumption, traffic patterns or energy use, they need new technologies to enable the change. Our sustainability initiatives in Dubuque prove that, by using advanced analytics, community engagement, and cloud computing, government officials and citizens will have access to real-time data to alter their patterns of behavior, which will save them money. This water sustainability pilot case is a template for communities worldwide that seek to conserve various types of resources.
