"Government is big and often difficult for citizens to navigate. That’s why digital government is so important: it’s one-to-one even though government services are for many. So Kentucky’s digital government efforts must be clear, understandable, accessible and easily navigated—with privacy and security at the forefront. This annual summit brings together technology leaders who will share with you their ideas, best practices and trends for the future. If  you work with technology at any level, you don’t want to miss this summit. You’ll see what companies have to offer, learn from your peers and take away ideas to enhance your own digital technology platforms."
