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 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:

  • Applying Analytics
  • Digital Transformation and Enterprise Content Management
  • The Threat Landscape and the State of the Internet
  • It's a Hybrid World
  • Solving Real World Problems Through Data Analytics
  • Government is a Cool Place to Work
  • Future of Computing and the Data Center
  • State Contract Reform Update – Senate Bill 20
  • Cognitive Technologies - Helping us to Outthink Real Problems
  • Application Showcase: Speed Dating for the Digitally Infatuated

A message from our Keynote Speaker

Please join me at the Texas Digital Government Summit on June 20 and 21, 2016. The Summit has a new location this year at the newly renovated Doubletree on IH35! The Summit is known for its long tradition of compelling keynote speakers and thought provoking educational sessions addressing the most important topics we face as technology leaders in government.  The Summit is also an excellent opportunity for state and local governments to engage in discussions, share best practices, and recognize the annual Best of Texas Award recipients. I encourage you to attend one of the best technology events in Texas. I’m looking forward to seeing you there!

Todd Kimbriel, Executive Deputy Director/State Chief Information Office
