Today we released a new example app: an online database displaying government funding.
We think this is a great example of how local, city, and state governemnts can use Knack to make more government data accessible to their constituents.
Knack has a few key features that work particularly well for e-governemnt apps:
- Knack apps can be embedded directly on government websites and look completely integrated.
- Knack apps can handle millions of records and still be extremely fast. Databases of this size are difficult to keep speedy in traditional non-cloud IT systems.
- Knack apps are simple to build for non-IT staff. This way IT staff can spend their resources on more critical
- Knack apps are extremely cost efficient and can unlock data for constituents that might otherwise not be available.
