Massachusetts Digital Government Summit 2017

Sep 26 - 27, 2017
Boston, MA

Overview

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 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:

  • Security Cybersecurity – Best Practices in Answering “Are We Secure Yet?”
  • Optimizing the Workforce and Workplace of Tomorrow
  • Smarter Communities and IoT
  • Cover Your “aaS
  • Next Generation Analytics
  • Changing the Citizen Experience
  • Procurement – Where Are We Headed?
  • The Human Side of Security
  • Human Centered Design Thinking
  • Workforce of the Future Roundtable
  • State/Municipal Collaboration Roundtable

A message from our Keynote Speaker

For two decades, the MA Digital Government Summit has served as the cornerstone of collaboration and innovation among the Commonwealth’s civic tech community. I look forward to seeing leaders from the private, public, and nonprofit communities come together to tackle some of our state’s most pressing IT problems at this year’s conference. I hope you’ll join us.

– Mark Nunnelly, Secretary, Executive Office of Technology Services and Security & Chief Information Officer, Commonwealth of Massachusetts
