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- 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.

A message from our Keynote Speaker

"This will be my fourth address to the Digital Government Summit. The first was after a few weeks on the job and the last was a report out on the progress of our plans. This year we continue to move the needle by being effective, efficient and accountable to the citizens of the State of Wisconsin through our product and service offerings. While we continue to advocate for enterprise strategies, we must also be more innovative, agile and nimble. Enterprise strategies offer the consistency of best practices across our IT organizations to achieve economies of scale while also listening and soliciting great ideas from every corner of the state and local government. Our citizens and market trends will keep us challenged with many opportunities to be better. I am confident we have a phenomenal staff throughout government that will encourage dialogue between policy makers, business people and IT professionals, including building collaborative relationships and then letting our talent flourish to make Wisconsin a premier state."


- David Cagigal, Wisconsin State CIO
