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

This Year’s Topics Include:

  • Cloud Today – What It Means for the Business of Government
  • Making the Mechanics Work: Governance and Reporting
  • Disaster Preparedness and Response
  • Turning Data into Knowledge
  • State and Local Government Threat Landscape
  • Hyper-convergence: The Integration of Business and Technology
  • Got Mobile?
  • Driving Digital Government Transformation with Creativity and Engagement
  • Human Centered Design Thinking
