"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

Keynote Speaker:

Cynthia Storer HeadshotFrom Analyst to Hero: How Big Data Led to Bin Laden

Cynthia Storer, Former CIA Senior Analyst

Cindy was part of a team of CIA intelligence analysts – dubbed "The Sisterhood" – who discovered obscure data patterns signaling that Al-Qaeda was a coordinated and highly dangerous threat. Though the team raised the alarm, few people listened. Then 9/11 changed the world. Cindy became a key strategic analyst, helping the nation’s policymakers frame their understanding of terrorism and Al-Qaeda. Her pioneering work helped lay the foundation for the efforts of the analysts and targeting officers who eventually found Bin Laden’s hideout, as depicted in the movie Zero Dark Thirty. In this riveting keynote address, Cindy tells the inside story of how Big Data helped lead to the identification and capture of Al-Qaeda leaders, including the most wanted man in history. Her inspirational messages include: believe in what you do, take responsibility, trust your instincts, and be willing to think outside the box.
