Alabama Digital Government Summit 2016

Jun 1, 2016
Montgomery, AL


Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Alabama Digital Government Summit is designed to do just that. The summit has an advisory board that gathers public sector and private sector leaders to create an agenda designed to make that passion relevant and actionable to the state and local government organizations attending the summit. Participants tell us they use the inspirational keynotes, leadership discussions, networking breaks, and timely topics discussed in the numerous breakout sessions to help advance the goals of their organizations and their own career paths.

This Year’s Topics Include:

  • Cloud Today – What It Means for the Business of Government
  • Making the Mechanics Work: Governance and Reporting
  • Mobile Applications – Build it Right
  • Recruiting and Retaining the New Workforce
  • Coming to Terms with Big Data
  • Cyber Security: How Do I know When I’m Doing Enough?
  • The Agile Enterprise: A Compelling Future for your Organization
  • Are You a Champion of Change?
  • Broadband and the New Digital Citizen
  • Metrics That Matter: Measuring the Impact of Technology

A message from our Keynote Speaker

IT is changing all the time, and that can make things extremely frustrating. But the truth is IT isn’t the enemy. Hear from IT disruptors who have learned to not only embrace the changes but anticipate them as well. Join industry experts and insiders in panels and discussions to examine IT strategies in the government sector. I hope you’ll join us at the Alabama Digital Government Summit that encourages innovation and solutions!

- Dr. Joanne Hale, Acting Secretary of Information Technology, State of Alabama
