CIO Gary Cavin says it's a cornerstone of his city's success.
In June, Columbus, Ohio, was named Intelligent Community of the Year by the Intelligent Communities Forum (ICF), an organization that promotes using technology to boost economic success and tackle social challenges. A three-time finalist in the global award program, Columbus earned the top ranking in 2015 on the strength of a solid broadband infrastructure and effective collaboration among the city government, research institutions and private businesses.
Columbus CIO Gary Cavin says broadband Internet access is a cornerstone of his city's success. He talked about the importance of high-speed access and how Columbus is preparing for the Internet of Things in this interview from Government Technology's Ohio Digital Government Summit last week.
