Wake Ranked 4th Most Digital County in U.S.

DigiCo2015NewsEventsGraphic.jpgWake County is ranked 4th among large counties in the United States for technology use by this year's Digital Counties Survey, conducted by the Center for Digital Government. Wake is up four spots from the previous two years.

The rankings measure and acknowledge each county that has demonstrated a high level of technology use, particularly in the areas of citizen engagement, policy, data and operations.

Some of Wake's technology highlights from the 2015 Fiscal Year include:

  • creation of the WakeTransit.com website;
  • collaboration of Wake County/City of Raleigh Emergency Communications;
  • development of SharePoint team sites to foster collaboration; and
  • deployment of centrally managed computers for skills training and job searches at the South Wilmington Street Center.

"This award is an important milestone for Wake County," said Chief Information Officer Bill Greeves. "As a County, we have focused on both informing and engaging our residents, and this ranking is a result of the work of all of our departments, as well as the collaborations and partnerships we enjoy with our municipalities."

The annual survey is conducted by the Center for Digital Government in partnership with NACo, the National Association of Counties. The Center for Digital Government is a national research and advisory institute on information technology policies and best practices in state and local government. NACo brings together the United States' 3,069 county governments to collaborate on attention-worthy topics such as national policy, innovative leadership skills, effective county solutions and public awareness of county government's role in communities.
