Wisconsin Digital Government Summit 2018

Nov 29 - 30, 2018
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 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:

  • Analytics Today
  • Maintaining Control in the Cloud
  • The Future of Connectivity
  • 360 View of the Citizen
  • Strategies for Smart Communities
  • DevOps 101
  • IT Governance Case – Study Enabling Collaboration Across the UW-Madison Campus
  • Knowledge Management as a Journey, Agile as a Driver
  • The Evolving Cloud
  • Election Security – The Epitome of a Cyber Challenge
  • Uberizing Government
  • Wisconsin is Open for Business - Foxconn’s Impact on Wisconsin

A message from our Keynote Speaker

For the past 18 years, the Summit has provided a unique opportunity to collaborate with professionals from Wisconsin on new and innovative technological processes.  IT continues to evolve at a rapid pace, as does the needs of our citizens.  At this Summit we continue to provide new insights in how to transform the state towards new and innovative IT strategies. I look forward to seeing you there for two days of networking and sharing ideas!
