Kentucky Digital Government Summit 2017

Apr 18, 2017
Frankfort, KY


To view speaker presentations where available, see Agenda page.

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

  • Don’t Take the Bait!
  • Managing Your Data
  • Achieving More with Less – It’s Not Just a Cliché
  • The Value of a Risk Assessment
  • Leveraging Your Data
  • The Road to a Smart Community
  • Moving Out of the Fog and into the Cloud
  • Show Me the Money!
  • Security and Elections

A message from our Keynote Speaker

I look forward to the Kentucky Digital Government Summit every year. It’s the perfect opportunity for both sectors to get together to discuss where we’re headed and how we can get there even faster. There’s an energy that’s palpable at the Summit and we always end up engaging in important discussions about new ideas, solutions and opportunities. I strongly encourage you to join us and I look forward to seeing you there!

– Jim Barnhart, Deputy Commissioner, Commonwealth Office of Technology
