COVITS 2019

Sep 4 - 5, 2019

Overview

Government Technology's passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. COVITS is designed to do just that. The summit has an advisory board that gathers public sector and private sector leaders to create an agenda that is 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:

  • The Data Governance Challenge
  • Connectivity and Continuity
  • Unmanned Systems - Challenges and Opportunities
  • Maximizing Data Value
  • Cyber Defense in Depth
  • Smart Communities Today
  • Tomorrow’s Tech Talent
  • Commonwealth’s Perspective on Data
  • Transforming the Government Experience
  • Keys to Universal Broadband in Virginia

A message from our Keynote Speaker

We all take pride in the fact that Virginia and its cities and counties have won numerous digital government awards in recent years. As we progress forward, technology will continue to be at the heart of our ambitious plans for serving Virginians in new and better ways, and we are striving more than ever to embrace innovation and find new ways to get our goals accomplished. Let’s use this year’s COVITS as a platform to join forces, share ideas and be inspired. The timing couldn’t be better. I look forward to seeing you there!

– Keyanna Conner, Secretary of Administration, Commonwealth of Virginia


I look forward to COVITS every year because it’s all about engaging the IT community and strengthening our alliances within the Commonwealth. There is a lot going on right now and COVITS is the ideal place to discuss what we’re doing, where we’re going and how we’ll get there. Please join us!

– Nelson Moe, Chief Information Officer, Commonwealth of Virginia
