Massachusetts Digital Government Summit 2015

Nov 2 - 3, 2015
Boston, MA


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.

If you influence or participate in technology decisions or implementations at any level, you will want to attend.  Don't miss this opportunity to see the latest in digital government solutions, keep abreast of current policy issues, and network with key government executives, technologists and industry specialists.

This Year’s Topics Include:

  • Data Trends
  • Cyber Security: How Do I know When I’m Doing Enough?
  • Leveraging Networks and Automation across the Enterprise
  • Citizen Engagement
  • Big Data and Meaningful Analytics
  • Future of Mobility
  • Procurement Strategies for Cloud and “XaaS”
  • Shaping the Future IT Workforce – How to Recruit, Retain and Survive
  • Boston Technology Update
  • 20 Apps in 20 Minutes
