Illinois Digital Government Summit 2016

Oct 6 - 7, 2016
Springfield, IL

Overview

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

  • Cyber Security Evolution
  • Future of Computing
  • Power of Analytics
  • The Agile Approach
  • Information of Everything
  • Pathway to the Cloud
  • Next Generation Workforce – How to Develop, Recruit, Retain and Survive
  • Cognitive Thinking
  • Why Governments Fail at Cyber Security (It Can Happen to Anyone)

 

 

A message from our Keynote Speaker

Under Governor Rauner’s leadership, Illinois is on a reality-based journey to transform its decades-old technology, processes and policies to better serve our customers. We are on the way to becoming nation’s first Smarter State, and the Digital Government Summit is the perfect place to discuss where we are going and how to get there faster, cheaper and more creatively. It is a team effort and your ideas and innovations are critical to our success. I encourage you to join the discussions and I look forward to seeing you there!
