Event Overview

Transforming Government through Accelerating Impact and Modernizing Technology.

The State of Georgia has seen exceptional modernization in public sector technology. This is due to the measures taken by the state to serve its citizens in new and innovative ways. Technology has unlocked countless opportunities for collaboration, improvement, and growth among agencies and departments state-wide. Issues such as broadband development, the future of work, driving the development of innovative priorities, and bridging the digital divide are all top of mind for Georgians of all backgrounds.
