How the Town of Cary Uses Open Data and Smart City Initiatives with Janelle Bailey

Welcome to the OpenDataSoft Leadership Podcast Series, “Open Data Discussions”. Each month, Jason Hare, our Open Data Evangelist, features a different open data program around the country to discuss what has made it successful. These examples will provide insights and strategies that you can implement in your own city.

We had the pleasure of welcoming Janelle Bailey, Enterprise Data Strategist from the Town of Cary, North Carolina for the third podcast in our series.

Janelle discussed various subjects, including:

– Why is developing an open data policy important for the Town of Cary?
– What are the different data integration strategies developed by the Town of Cary?
– Does the work done by the Town of Cary about open data and smart city affect other municipalities?
– How does What Works Cities help to address both the technical aspect and the engagement part of their open data program?
