New York City Technology Forum 2016

Nov 14 - 15, 2016
Brooklyn, NY


Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The New York City Technology Forum 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.

This Year’s Topics Include:

  • Lessons in Leadership
  • Cybersecurity: How Do I know When I’m Doing Enough?
  • Using Collaborative Design and Digital Tools for the Public Good
  • Breach! When Bad Things Happen to Good People (and Their Organizations)
  • The Internet of Things and the Impact on Government
  • DevOps and Improved Service Delivery
  • Digital Transformation and Enterprise Content Management
  • Cognitive Technologies – Helping us to Outthink Real Problems
  • What Makes a Smart City?
  • Ransomware Epidemic
  • Human Centered Design Thinking
  • Services, Platforms and Clouds…Oh my!


A message from our Keynote Speaker

I hope you will join us at the 19th annual New York City Technology Forum November 14 - 15 at the Brooklyn Marriott. I look forward to engaging discussion about shared experiences, best practices, recent developments, and emerging solutions for the unique challenges we face as public sector leaders. I hope to see you there.


- Anne Roest, Commissioner, New York City DoITT
