Like most municipalities, the City of Miami is under mounting pressure to do more with less. One such challenge is in the city’s land management operations, which encompass functions such as permitting, zoning, urban planning and design, inspections, certifications, code enforcement and regulation, code compliance, and related services. Land management had an aging mainframe system and many business processes that were manual and inefficient. Working with Microsoft, the City of Miami deployed a new system based on the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, Microsoft ASP.NET MVC 2, SQL Server 2008, and the .NET Language-Integrated Query (LINQ) technology to support the modernization of the city’s land management operations. Now, citizens can apply for permits online 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and inspectors can more easily conduct and record inspections in the field.
