"Today, government no longer simply uses IT as a tool. It is now a truly digital business. As public sector thinkers and doers focused on technology, we have an unparalleled – and unprecedented – opportunity to make Massachusetts a better place to live, work, and play. So how can we bring the best in technology and innovation to bear on our work?  How can we take our examples of collaboration and turn it into something much bigger, so that we truly are sharing our resources across government? I look forward to discussing these important questions – and more – with you at this year’s Digital Government Summit. I hope you’ll join me."   

- Bill Oates, Chief Information Officer, Commonwealth of Massachusetts

Massachusetts Digital Government Summit 2014


Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Massachusetts Digital Government Summit is designed to do just that. The summit has an advisory board that gathers public- 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 the timely topics discussed in the numerous breakout sessions to help advance the goals of their organizations.

  • Moving Infrastructure to the Cloud
