  • GOVERNING FROM THE CLOUD: Pierce County, WA, and the City of Orlando
  • You’ve heard that many things are moving to the cloud – but can government be one of them? Leading organizations are in fact moving certain technologies into the cloud to save money and improve service effectiveness.

Currently, there are several hundred billion dollars of delinquent receivables, especially aged receivables, owed to governments that could be collected and used to provide valuable services to citizens.
