Maine Digital Government Summit 2016

Nov 1, 2016
Augusta, ME


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

  • Customer Experience Design
  • Don’t Take the Bait
  • Data Rich, Results Poor?
  • LEAN New England
  • Internet of Things and Its Impact on Government
  • Workforce of the Future
  • Mobile Friendly Design
  • The Efficiency of Identity Access Management
  • Virtual Reality in Government
  • Someone is Watching – Can You Manage IT?
  • Game of Drones

A message from our Keynote Speaker

It is my privilege and honor to invite you to the 2016 Maine Digital Summit – this will be our 14th Summit. It will be my fourth. Each year, there is more to discuss, more to discover, more opportunities to strategize, and more networking opportunities – which is what you all bring to the table. The Digital Summit is an opportunity to both reflect on our past achievements and to plan together for the future. As in previous sessions, the topics will be timely, covering everything from the latest in cyber security, workforce development, project management, broadband, business intelligence, cloud services and more. We hope you can join us, and help us build this complex roadmap for the future.

- Jim Smith, Chief Information Officer, State of Maine
