The world is not just getting smaller and flatter; it is also becoming more instrumented, interconnected and intelligent. City leaders increasingly collaborate across departments, with schools, and with nonprofit service providers to evaluate and improve their programs' impact, to identify clients at-risk and intervene proactively, and to provide more timely and more complete information to educators and social workers who work directly with youth and families.
IBM Smarter Cities has announced a new Municipal Data Integration Partnership with NLC that will help cities build smarter human service systems beginning in November 2012. Through sharing the expertise and leading-edge technology it has developed helping governments around the world with some of their most challenging issues, IBM, an NLC Corporate Partner, will work with NLC members to implement new integrated data strategies that improve outcomes for core social programs: health, human and youth services, juvenile justice, back-to-work initiatives and others.
Join this webinar to learn how to apply to IBM's Early Adopters Program: an offer of software, consultation and technical assistance targeted to the human and social service system needs of NLC members. Speakers will also describe the expansion of NLC’s municipal data sharing network and discuss opportunities for IBM to be a resource to city leaders pursuing these new and promising strategies.
