PAST EVENT

Sep 5 - 6, 2012

"GTC East, New York State government's premier conference on technology and innovation is transforming itself. Not to be outdone by our State's IT transformation initiatives, GTC East is introducing a new format and venue for the annual technology event. GTC East provides a unique opportunity for State's IT talents to engage colleagues, industry thought leaders, and top-tier companies to help advance the New York State technology capability. Much like the annual CIO Academy, GTC East will be a strategic, focused event and an incubator for sharing knowledge and brainstorming new ideas. Please join us and re-imagine how IT can help deliver better services to our fellow New Yorkers."

- Dan Chan, Acting Chief Information Officer, State of New York
