"Please join me at the Texas Digital Government Summit (formerly GTC Southwest) on June 16 and 17th, 2014. GTC Southwest has a new name and a new look this year!   The Summit will continue GTC’s tradition of compelling keynote speakers and thought provoking educational sessions addressing the most important topics that we as technology leaders in government are facing.  The Summit is also an excellent opportunity for state and local governments to engage in discussions, share best practices, and will also host the annual Best of Texas Awards. I encourage you to attend what I consider to be one of the best technology events produced in Texas. I’m looking forward to seeing you there!"

- Karen Robinson, Executive Director, Texas Department of Information Resources – CIO, State of Texas

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

  • The CIO Perspective: Leading Government
  • Beyond Crystal Balls and Tarot Cards - Data Mining and Predictive Analytics
  • Cloud Best Practices
  • Security – Intruder Prevention and Threat Analysis
  • Data Analysis – Structured vs. Unstructured Data
  • Security in the Cloud
  • The Fluid Workforce
  • Enterprise Architecture and IT Innovation
  • Everything Is Connected - The Internet of Things
  • State of the State of Security
