PAST EVENT

Sep 18 - 19, 2013

"Change is easy... Changing is hard. Ohio's IT Optimization is about transforming how we do business while increasing efficiencies, improving services, reducing complexity and realizing savings for Ohioans. Costs and resource commitments associated with maintaining multiple IT infrastructures are clearly not sustainable. We need to work together to align our IT strategies to enable the business of the State and provide value to the citizens of Ohio. Come to the 13th Annual Ohio Digital Government Summit and share your ideas, solutions and lessons learned and become part of the solution. I encourage you to not only attend this year's Summit but to be an active part of the discussion. I look forward to seeing you all there!"

- Stu Davis, Chief Information Officer, State of Ohio
