Open Source and Cloud as a Laboratory for Innovation


Speaker: Joshua Mitchell

Room: Technology Theater, inside Hall E

Join Joshua Mitchell, Web and Enterprise Applications Manager, as he walks us through the impact of open source and cloud technologies at Multnomah County.

In three years, Multnomah County has launched Google Apps for Government, a new public website platform (migrating all previously separate websites), a rapid application deployment platform with over 12 productivity and publishing apps for county departments, a new Intranet built on social and collaboration tools, a learning management system to promote online learning, and a website for the Multnomah County Library that is drawing excited reviews from around the country.

How has a government agency become so productive and efficient? Multnomah County has become a laboratory for innovation.
