Pennsylvania Digital Government Summit 2017

Dec 7 - 8, 2017
Harrisburg, PA


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 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:

  • Practical Cloud
  • IT and Business - Seeking the Holy Grail
  • Where’s My Data?
  • Design Thinking
  • How Do We Determine What Citizens Really Want?
  • Risk Governance Strategies
  • Time to Innovate!
  • Blockchain 101
  • Solving Government’s Real-time Problems Geospatially
  • FirstNet and NextGen 9-1-1: The Future of Public Safety


A message from our Keynote Speaker

Whenever we have the opportunity to network with peers, discuss best practices, share lessons learned and explore leading-edge technologies, we need to take full advantage. The annual Pennsylvania Digital Government Summit is the perfect place to do it. We have some big plans in the Commonwealth and we have a lot to talk about. I invite you to attend the Summit and be part of the discussions. I hope to see you there!

- John MacMillan, Chief Information Officer, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
