“One of the things we gained from OpenGov was a team… who could guide us through our open data experience and who we could reach out to and get answers from in a timely manner.”

Justin Mercier, Data Systems Architect
City of Denton, TX

“Our collaboration with OpenGov enabled us to develop and deploy this new portal more easily than if we tried to do it by ourselves. That let us focus on what we're good at — finding and cataloging high-quality data sets — rather than trying to deploy and manage software on our own."

Andrew Therriault, Chief Data Officer
City of Boston, MA
