In Michigan's Macomb County, officials have turned to cloud computing for hosting of their email and financial systems, which CIO Sandy Jurek says is a diverse approach to use of the cloud.

Jurek, who spoke with Government Technology at the 2015 Michigan Digital Government Summit in Lansing, also said the county is working on a data analytics pilot to assess how offenders move through the public safety and courts system; officials are harnessing data from local police lockups, jails, and district and circuit courts to build a data warehouse that will help them look at how to use that data to inform business decisions.
