“Under the Hogan administration, there are more Marylanders than ever
before using Maryland’s Open Data Portal. Interest in open data has
expanded throughout the world, and, with over 8,500 unique users
accessing Maryland’s Open Data Portal per month, our state is no
different,” said Michael G. Leahy, secretary of the Maryland Department
of Information Technology. “Demand for greater transparency,
accessibility, and ease of use continues to grow and the citizens of
Maryland expect data to be available to them as fast as they request it.”

Open Data Act and implemented the state’s Open Data Portal in 2014, as
well as large data-driven programs such as Maryland
OneStop Portal
and Maryland Total Human-services Integrated Network
(MD THINK). Furthermore, the state’s website provides a gateway for more
than 21 million visitors to visit agency websites and use

Maryland will use the Socrata Connected Government Cloud to improve
operational efficiency, strengthen the security of its data, and enhance
collaboration across agencies and coordinating offices. SCGC is an
integrated solution fueled by Socrata’s data-as-a-service platform,
which brings built-in analytics to support government’s most important
programs, including open data.

The SCGC solution will serve as a self-service centralized data
repository for state employees. The extensible cloud-based, data sharing
platform, which was built specifically for governments, streamlines data
governance and self-service access across organizations.

“Maryland experienced firsthand how leveraging data makes governments
more nimble, responsive, and strategic,” said Kevin Merritt, president
of Tyler’s Data & Insights Division.

“Virtually every government can benefit from better use of data. By
creating a single source of truth that turns data into insights, Socrata
Connected Government Cloud will underpin Maryland’s commitment to
digital governance.”
