Georgia Digital Government Summit 2017

Oct 30 - 31, 2017

Overview

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

Topics Include:

  • Security in the Age of Constant Connection
  • Getting your Data House in Order
  • Blockchain 101
  • Digital Inclusion
  • Turning Data into Actionable Knowledge
  • Optimizing the Workforce and Workplace of Tomorrow
  • The Road to Intelligent Communities

  • Experience as a Service: Think Bigger Than Websites and Apps
  • GTA and DOAS - Your Service Providers

A message from our Keynote Speaker

Technology is transforming our world at a faster pace than ever before. We see its profound impact not only in the way that major industries do business, but also in the way government does business. The Georgia Digital Government Summit offers us a timely opportunity to consider ways to take advantage of the benefits technology offers. State agencies and local governments alike can find value in keynote presentations, breakout sessions and vendor exhibits, and it’s a great forum for strengthening relationships and collaboration between state and local agencies. The Summit is targeted to both IT staff and business leaders, with a substantive agenda aimed at exploring how technology can support business objectives. I hope you’ll plan to attend the Summit – you’ll find it well worth your time.

– Calvin Rhodes, Chief Information Officer, State of Georgia
