Tyler Clients Top GovTech's List
April 09, 2020 by
Each year, Government Technology’s Top 25 honors public sector innovators. These “Doers, Dreamers, and Drivers” creatively use technology innovations to improve government processes and service delivery.
We are honored that more than half of the 2020 public sector honorees come from Tyler client organizations. Common among the winners this year was a focus on cybersecurity, including managed threat detection, along with a move to a cloud environment for increased security, flexibility, and scalability.
“Local governments must constantly adapt to meet the needs of their constituents, and we’re glad to see their forward-looking efforts recognized by Government Technology,” said Lynn Moore, president and CEO of Tyler. “We are especially excited to see their commitment toward improving things like cybersecurity, data analysis, and citizen engagement services. We applaud their dedication to local and state government innovation through technology.”

Among the winners, Massachusetts CIO Curtis Wood is helping to ensure all agencies are ready for a move to a hybrid cloud environment. A similar hybrid solution including both cloud and on-premises was noted for Dutchess County, New York. The county’s CIO, Glenn Marchi, moved to the hybrid model for increased responsiveness and time savings. He also launched a 24/7 cybersecurity alert system to protect county networks.
In Atlanta, a new cybersecurity plan that included incident response topped a list of accomplishments. Atlanta CIO Gary Brantly also thoughtfully modernized the city’s tech infrastructure and sought out redundancies to save nearly $3 million annually.
We congratulate these exemplar leaders and organizations for their valuable work in solving problems and improving communities around the country. We look forward to continuing to celebrate and support their innovative work.
