Mississippi Digital Government Summit 2015

Sep 22, 2015
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- 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:

  • Living in the Cloud
  • Analytics: Making the Data Work
  • Mobility – Better Ways to Serve Citizens and Staff
  • Lessons From Healthcare Technology – Breaking New Ground in Government
  • Connected Government
  • The Impact of Broadband in Mississippi
  • Collaboration Innovation Nation
