AWS simplifies IT workloads that governments struggle with every day, making it easier to deploy and manage the technology our customers depend on, such as Geographical Information Systems (GIS), Content Management Systems (CMS), Open Data portals, and more. All of these applications run on AWS and make it easier for governments to deliver their services.

Through our City on a Cloud Innovation Challenge, we recognize local and regional governments are hubs of innovation, driving technology solutions to help improve citizens' lives.  Visit our map of the "City on a Cloud" to learn what cities can do with cloud computing or see the solutions deployed by last year's winners here.

Local and regional governments are innovating quickly to respond to the needs of their citizens.  From transportation to planning to utilities, governments are using cloud computing to transform the way they interact with citizens and think about their future.

If you are a local or regional government leader or a technology partner who has deployed an innovative solution to solve a government challenge, we want to hear about it in the Best Practices or Partners in Innovation Award Categories. Or, if you have a great idea that you'd like to implement in your city, we encourage you to submit it in the Dream Big Award Category.
