Has anyone been part of these OpenGov purchase decisions? Is Socrata the legitimate competitor in that space?
If so, what do the differences in those products look like from the city agency perspective? From the citizen perspective?
I'm starting a research project that looks at these public-private boundaries with respect to open data, transparency and risk so I'm trying to get a sense of what is at stake in these decisions to adopt one platform over another (or develop one like NYC Checkbook).
Thanks in advance.
