Government Success: A Major California Municipality Turns to HSO for Help Managing Data for Environmental Sustainability

The solution helped track a $70M program that will accelerate efforts to tackle climate change and promote a sustainable future for residents

About

With more than one million residents, this city has one of the biggest concentrations of technology companies and expertise in the world.

Challenge

This municipality had won the Bloomberg American Cities Climate Challenge, a $70M program that will accelerate efforts to tackle climate change and promote a sustainable future for residents. The goal was to build a portal where the public could watch the progress being made towards goals and metrics. The municipality struggled to find the capacity to develop the necessary tools to monitor progress of an initiative that they made substantial investments in and that is key to improving life for residents.

Solution

HSO designed a process to collect data from the departments responsible for indicators, e.g., water usage or vehicle miles traveled, and pushed it into Microsoft Azure data cloud storage. Microsoft Power BI is used to pull in that data and create visualizations and charts, which was in turn posted on a website hosted on Azure.

Results

In the end, the municipality acquired a key source of information to the public on the progress of their goals that will enable stakeholders to monitor their investments and commitment to improving environmental sustainability.
