It’s a critical time for local leaders across the country. Now, more than ever, government agencies are feeling the pressure to deliver the “Amazon experience” of easy, fast, convenient, and transparent delivery of quality service, and with an eye on budget constraints. To keep pace, agencies are increasingly looking to cloud technology to save valuable time and resources and meet increasing citizen expectations.

But, for local government CIOs, the journey to the cloud goes far beyond simply purchasing new technology — it requires an entirely new model of trust. This session will focus on how technology partners can build relationships with agencies to foster the trust needed to build connected communities through shared data. The collaborative utilization of data across federal, state, and local governments can open up possibilities to radically improve digital services, increase citizen participation, make governments more accountable, and better inform decisions. Join Renato Mascardo, CTO at Accela, and Lou Moore, CTO of Code for America, for a discussion on what connected government means in 2020 and beyond, including how governments and technologists work together to leverage open data to tackle some of today’s biggest challenges and enhance the modern relationship between citizen and government.
