The use of modular, open source digital platforms can provide dramatic improvements in the efficiency and accountability of public institutions. Deployed together, digital government platforms can form integrated government operating systems with the potential to transform the relationship between citizens, the state, and society. A growing number of governments are deploying digital platforms to power their public institutions, but to date there has not been a comprehensive effort to map progress in this space. New America�s Digital Impact and Governance Initiative (DIGI) catalogued successes in this nascent field to illuminate how governments and other stakeholders are harnessing digital platforms to bring public institutions into the twenty-first century. The Digital Government Mapping Project is a compendium of leading platforms that policymakers, technologists, and strategists can evaluate and benchmark when building a strategy to digitize their societies.
