"These are exciting times for IT in the public sector! Mobile workers, smart apps, tablets, big data, analytics and so much more technology is providing opportunities to innovate and deliver greater services to our citizens. As we continue our focus on efficiencies and ways to reduce costs, it is great to see innovation and collaborative efforts in IT, as well as the dedicated leadership from people who are passionate about the role they play. The Los Angeles Digital Government Summit provides a unique environment that brings together technology leaders in the community to meet with our business partners to exchange ideas and work to address the many challenges we are facing. We can learn so much from each other and I encourage your attendance and look forward to seeing you there."
