For me, digital government is still first about providing services and information. Utah.gov provides a lot of that with millions of pages of content and almost 1100 transactional services. In 2012 alone, in a state of only 2.8 million residents, we processed over 31 million transactions. That is a dramatic change in just the last 15 years from the time we put our first such service online.

Speaking of data, an average of 114 gigabytes of open data is now downloaded every week from gis.utah.gov. This is the kind of data that has economic value and a multitude of uses. I'm glad to see that there are about 30,000 downloads every week.
Utah's online education initiative is also starting to pay off. In fact, Utah was rated #1 in the recently published Digital Learning Report Card, receiving an "A" grade. Florida is doing an outstanding job in this area as well.
