Hawaii Digital Government Summit 2016

Jun 16, 2016
Honolulu, HI


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

  • Going Paperless
  • Mobile Applications – Build it Right
  • Services, Platforms and Clouds…Oh My!
  • Agile IT
  • Building Hawaii’s Government IT Workforce
  • Future of Cybersecurity
  • Transforming Government: IT’s Seat at the Table
  • Embracing Mobile for a Better Public Sector
  • Why Broadband Matters
  • The Internet of Things Enabling Smart Cities
