Wisconsin Digital Government Summit 2017

Nov 30, 2017 - Dec 1, 2017
Madison, WI


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

  • Cybersecurity – Best Practices in Answering “Are We Secure Yet?”
  • Optimizing the Workforce and Workplace of Tomorrow
  • Changing the Citizen Experience
  • Cover Your “aaS”
  • Smarter Communities and IoT
  • Between the Chair and the Keyboard - The Human Side of Security
  • Skill Sets of the Future
  • eDiscovery and Records Management – Best Practices
  • Design Thinking in Government
  • Unified Communications - Making it a Reality
  • Emergency Management and Public Safety
  • Gamification and Interactive Media

A message from our Keynote Speaker

We eagerly look forward to the Wisconsin Digital Government Summit every year. For the past 17 years, the Summit has provided a unique opportunity to share great ideas and discuss technologies and solutions that will enable us to better serve the citizens of Wisconsin. This year, we will continue to provide new insights as to how to transform the state with innovative IT strategies. It is now more important than ever for us to come together to discuss the current challenges we face in government IT. This is the networking event of the year and I look forward to seeing all of you there!
