PAST EVENT

Apr 17 - 18, 2013

"2013 marks our 7th year for the annual NY IT Leadership Academy (formerly CIO Academy) and it has become a premier technology event in New York for the public sector community. The Academy focuses on IT leadership development and is a great venue for seasoned and emerging IT talent to sharpen skills that center around strategic thinking and effective leadership. As New York focuses on IT Transformation, the training provided at the Academy is more important than ever. The participation of our private sector partners is a critical element of the program as their insight further strengthens and validates the State's technology strategy. The interactions that take place throughout the Academy spur new and innovative ideas of providing better customer-oriented services to New Yorkers."

- Brian Digman, Chief Information Officer, New York State
