Dec 4 - 5, 2014

"IT leadership skills are evolving by necessity as we are faced with entirely new sets of tools, rapidly changing social media, high demand for mobility, opportunities in the cloud, and a new wave of security concerns. Breadth of knowledge is essential to today’s IT manager. It requires us to step back once in a while and move outside the box to consider new and innovative ways to get things done. This forum is the perfect place to do it. Whether you are currently a manager or plan to become one, I encourage you to join us at this year’s Digital Government Summit."

– Tony Encinias, Chief Information Officer, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Pennsylvania Digital Government Summit is designed to do just that. The summit has an advisory board that gathers public- 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 the timely topics discussed in the numerous breakout sessions to help advance the goals of their organizations.

This year's Topics:

  • Single Face of Government – How to Get There

  • Creative Approaches to Citizen Engagement
  • Agile yet Secure Application Development
  • Emerging Technologies
