PAST EVENT

Dec 5 - 6, 2013

"As we plan for the 13th Annual Wisconsin Digital Government Summit, we believe this annual event allows us to target specific governmental opportunities for discussion and review. Technologies are changing rapidly. Here, we can evaluate creative and innovative approaches to support and strengthen government services. Our municipalities, local and state agencies in Wisconsin are increasingly turning to technology to optimize and transform services for our Wisconsinites while reducing governmental operating costs. This is an exciting time to share each other's best practices and plans. We look forward to our collaboration on technology solutions that are either enterprise-wide or specific to departmental and agency needs as well as being fiscally sound."

- David Cagigal, Chief Information Officer, State of Wisconsin
