Cisco Connected Communities for State and Local Government

Today's government are challenged to keep pace with evolving service demands of their communities. However, governments applications, business processes and supporting IT infrastructure can't support escalating community demands for access to information and services, at the point-of-need.

Connected Communities is the vision for networking citizens with their community, government, and work to allow individual choice and improved quality of life. Cisco has defined the five areas as the context to show how our technology can help governments make their communities better. The areas are: service effectiveness, citizen empowerment, public safety and security, social inclusion, and economic development.
