Georgia Data Analytics Center

State IT Innovation of the Year

Launched in 2019 as a central depository for data from across state government, the Georgia Data Analytics Center has already launched more than 10 dashboards on which researchers, analysts and members of the public can take a closer look at the state’s finances, property inventory and outcomes. Kanti Chalasani, GDAC’s director, says her five-person team built a scalable, cloud-based analytics system that’s acted as a “pipeline” through which agency data can flow. “The goal is to make Georgia data accessible in a timely manner,” she says.
