Mississippi Digital Government Summit 2017

Sep 19, 2017
Jackson, MS


Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Mississippi 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:

  • Securing the Magnolia State
  • Technologies That Will Change How Government Works
  • Delivering Services Through Data Quality
  • Moving Out of the Fog and into the Cloud
  • Identity and Access Management
  • Citizen Centric, User Experience (UX) Design
  • Architecting Agility in Digital Government
  • Optimizing the Workforce and Workplace of Tomorrow

A message from our Keynote Speaker

Information technology isn’t what it was a year ago; it continues to change and evolve at a rapid pace. The Mississippi Digital Government Summit will offer an interactive, high-energy venue for you to gain the tools and knowledge necessary to thrive in a constantly evolving industry, as well as the opportunity to connect and engage in discussions with leaders in government IT. I hope you’ll join us for networking and the chance to learn from others who are passionate about information technology innovation and leadership in the public sector!

Dr. Craig Orgeron, Chief Information Officer and Executive Director, Department of Information Technology Services, Chief Information Officer for the State of Mississippi
