algim-logoI spent the morning with the Association of Local Government Information Management (ALGIM) at their conference in Palmerston North. They had a huge range of topics on their agenda for the two days and I spoke on where I thought the Government Common Capability (ICT) Services were at, the incoming Data Flood as a result of the Smart and Sensing City movement, and the challenges that the local Councils are likely to face as a result.

Local Government sits at the middle of a maelstrom of incoming data, they may not see it yet, but as the rise of sensors and the Internet of Things begins, they are going to face huge challenges in how to manage that data while making it open to the entire world.
