Socrata is the leading developer and provider of Open Data Services, a category of cloud-based Web 2.0 solutions that enable federal, state, and local governments to dramatically improve the reach, usability and social utility of their public information assets.
The Socrata Social Data Platform™ is a turnkey information delivery platform that reduces lifecycle management costs for government customers while boosting their ability to disseminate relevant information and data-driven services to a wide range of audiences including citizens, civic application developers, researchers, journalists and internal stakeholders.
The cloud-based Socrata platform transforms information assets – tabular data, geospatial data, unstructured content and real-time data from government transactional systems – into a consumption-optimized and socially-enriched experience, that is automatically accessible across multiple channels of interaction, to enhance governments’ ability to accomplish their mission at a reduced cost.
The Socrata Open Data Platform™ is the most widely-adopted Open Data solution in Government. Socrata customers include Medicare, State of Washington and City of Seattle. Socrata was recently chosen to deliver the next-generation Open Data platform for Data.Gov and participating federal agencies, through its GSA reseller and fulfillment partner, Alamo City Engineering Services.
