Tyler Acquires Socrata

Tyler Has Acquired Socrata

Two market leaders with a shared focus and vision partnering to unleash data and insights.

Welcome to the future.

An Industry-Changing Combination

Tyler and Socrata have shared a common focus since their beginnings: transforming government through data and technology. Each is considered the market leader in their own space: Tyler as the largest company singularly focused on delivering the back-end systems to local governments and schools, and Socrata as the pioneer of data-enabled innovations delivering insights to government and its citizens.

A Shared Vision: Delivering Connected Communities

The companies have been on converging paths to realize the same vision:
to connect data and processes across the disparate systems of government.

Connect data geographically, crossing city, county and district lines

Connect processes across department and agency boundaries

Connect citizens to their government through transparency and access

Surface Meaning From Your Data

Surface Meaning From Your Data

You expect software to have basic tools to analyze your data, like reports and dashboards. Socrata leaps beyond that status quo and lifts data visualization to the next level, allowing those most able to affect outcomes to analyze and interpret their data like never before. To uncover financial trends, to understand the impact of operational decisions, and to predict statistical outcomes. All in real-time. Out-of-the box with Tyler solutions. And so intuitive you won’t even have to call for IT.

Discover Insights Through Connections

The unique strength of Socrata is bringing together seemingly unrelated data to uncover hidden insights and measure program accountability through transparency. The big problems facing government aren’t isolated in one data set — problems such as crime and recidivism rates, budget deficits, aging infrastructure, homelessness and the opioid crisis, just to name a few. Data-system agnostic, Socrata gives you the tools to connect data points across systems like never before.

Share and Engage Through Open Data

Share and Engage Through Open Data

Information is power. The real power of realizing insights is being able to share your information with others: your constituents, internal staff, external board members, community executives and others. Socrata builds engagement functionality directly into their system through their open-data platform and allows the building of stories around your data as a seamless process.

The future is bright with Tyler & Socrata

The potential to layer Socrata’s powerful data technology on top of Tyler’s back-office operational systems in more than 15,000 local government offices will allow us to provide data and insights on a scale that has the opportunity to fundamentally change the way local government understands their operations, uses their resources and serves their constituents.
