On June 6th, the first Upstate Data Summit was held on the campus of Syracuse University. Over 70 attendees came from across Upstate New York to hear how cities like Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Schenectady are using data to improve operations and make service delivery more efficient and more equitable.
The event featured speakers from Upstate cities and a keynote presentation from Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh. The event concluded with a panel discussion that included city representatives from the City of Binghamton and the NYS Department of State’s Division of Local Government Services.
