Finding the Leaders Behind the Data


We recently took a look at the wide variety of municipal IT structures in an effort to gain a better understanding of how governments perceive the role of technology in their operations. We also looked into some of the different titles and roles of the people who lead those departments. They have the opportunity to shape how information and data are shared with the public.

Research into local government IT structures and leadership could have started anywhere and could have lasted a very long time. We gathered ideas from several existing resources, making sure to include municipalities of all sizes across the country. Our list is by no means comprehensive — but that’s where you come in.

How does your city structure its IT efforts? Are there links that illustrate this? Please feel free to add them to our doc! We’ve made our research public and editable, and we’re looking forward to seeing what other examples are added.
