Maine Digital Government Summit 2017

Oct 24, 2017
Augusta, ME

Overview

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.

Topics Include:

  • Data Governance
  • Smarter Communities and IoT
  • Turbulence Within the Cloud
  • A Roadmap for Modernization
  • Next Generation Analytics
  • Building a Culture & Capacity for Agile Development
  • Workforce of the Future Roundtable

A message from our Keynote Speaker

It is my privilege once again to invite you to this year’s Maine Digital Summit – this will be our 15th summit. As past attendees know, this is a tremendous opportunity to network, to learn, to think about the future through the lens of technology; and our eRepublic hosts always get us thinking with great, nationally-known speakers. Each year at the summit, it seems there is more to review, talk about, consider – from new Cyber Defense approaches, to wearable computers, to IoT, to advances from 3d printing to artificial intelligence. The Summit is a great opportunity to think how those changes will impact government services. We probably all know what IBM President Tom Watson said in 1943: “‘I think there is a world market for about five computers”. Well, we live in a different world now. Come and join us on October 24th in Augusta, and we will work together to envision the present and the future.

- Jim Smith, Chief Information Officer, State of Maine
