Massachusetts Digital Government Summit 2018

Sep 12 - 13, 2018

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 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:

  • A Foundational Shift – How Blockchains Will Impact the Public Sector
  • Creating a Digital Strategy
  • Analytics Today
  • Getting Our Heads in the Cloud
  • AI, Machine Learning and Chatbots for Digital Customer Service in Government
  • Leading Modern Development Teams
  • A Pathway to Migration and Modernization
  • State/Municipal Collaboration Roundtable
  • Your Organization has been Breached. Now What?
  • Security and IoT
  • Security in the Cloud
  • Massachusetts Fusion Center

A message from our Keynote Speaker

Never before has the role of technology been more critical to the business of state government. From providing services to constituents when and where they need them, making sure our colleagues have the most secure and modern productivity tools, to tackling the ever-growing number of cyber security threats and data breaches, meeting these common challenges requires we continually share best practices and learn from each other. The annual Massachusetts Digital Summit is designed to do just that, bringing together IT professionals and government leaders in a dynamic and interactive forum that is not to be missed. I look forward to seeing you there.

-Mark Nunnelly, Secretary, Executive Office of Technology Services and Security
