Ohio Digital Government Summit 2017

Oct 17 - 18, 2017
Columbus, OH


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

  • Cloud Chasing – a Sensible Approach
  • Optimizing the Workforce and Workplace of Tomorrow
  • The Keys to Creating and Consuming Shared Services
  • Project Management: What’s the Formula for Success?
  • Navigating the Cyber Landscape in Your Own Organization
  • Why Aren’t There More Women in Technology?
  • Self-service Government – Let’s Shorten the Runway
  • Practical Continuity: Never Let a Good Disaster Go to Waste

A message from our Keynote Speaker

We are truly transforming how we do business within the State. Discussions are focused on why we should work together - because it is the right thing to do. We are working from an enterprise perspective and continue to address our next series of challenges. Come to the 17th Annual Ohio Digital Government Summit and share your ideas, solutions and lessons learned and become part of the enterprise team. I look forward to seeing you all there!

– Stu Davis, Chief Information Officer, State of Ohio
