Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The California Technology Forum 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.

Topics Include:

  • Securing California
  • The Future of the Government Customer Experience
  • Technologies That Will Change How Government Works
  • Accessible and Inclusive Government – Meeting the Needs of Each and Every Citizen
  • The Traditional RFP: Is it working?
  • Moving Out of the Fog and into the Cloud
  • Keeping the Enterprise Always On with IT Resilience
  • The Future is Workflow Automation
  • Millennials in Government - or Not?
  • Future of the Desktop and How We’ll Work
  • Transformative Change Initiatives – How to Thrive not just Survive!
