The city of Washington, D.C. is now building a private cloud infrastructure, launching a startup incubation effort, and pushing new community involvement in developing applications and leveraging government data.  As we have already seen the City of Washington D.C. is a very strong  innovative user of technology when federal CIO Vivek Kundra was CTO there before he moved to the White House.

Information Week reported “While that’s not revolutionary for the world, it’s pretty big for cities and government agencies,” Sivak said. “Here, it takes a long time to procure hardware, but now, a guy wants to go buy a server, it’s click-click-click and then it’s done.” In addition to building a private cloud, Sivak has embarked on the journey toward creating what he calls the “GIS model city” of Washington, D.C. The city is already a heavy supplier of mapping applications, having 26 apps that mash maps up with data on crimes, evacuation routes, school data, emergency facilities, addresses of notaries public, leaf collection, and much more.”
