Tennessee Digital Government Summit 2018

Jun 26, 2018
Nashville, TN


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

  • Cyber Attack Live Demo
  • Optimize Your Customer Journey - Customer Service Management
  • How Data Supports Digital Transformation
  • Getting Our Heads in the Cloud
  • Data Privacy & Governance
  • The Mobile Experience
  • Managing the Customer Experience
  • Building a Culture & Capacity for Agile Development
  • Why Your Cars Will Soon be Like Horses
  • Artificial Intelligence and Robotics

A message from our Keynote Speaker

We are very excited about the 15th Annual Tennessee Digital Government Summit which will be held June 26 in Nashville. The Summit is THE “must-attend” event in Tennessee for bringing government leaders and IT professionals together in order to learn new information and share how we can utilize emerging tools and technology to improve the State of TN for our citizens. In fact, it is not just an event, it is an experience. The Summit experience provides the ideal forum for us to meet and discuss our common challenges, share best practices, network with our government and industry peers and have fun learning about new technologies and ideas. This experience is a wonderful opportunity to meet with like-minded professionals, share knowledge, and make meaningful business connections. I encourage you to step away from the office for a day and experience the Tennessee Digital Government Summit. I look forward to seeing you there.

- Mark Bengel, Chief Information Officer, State of Tennessee
