Event Overview

The Public Sector often relied on one-off IT projects and applications to address their states’ needs. In today’s rapidly changing landscape government must learn to navigate such challenges as building capabilities, modernizing platforms, leveraging data/ analytics, citizens ever changing needs and a culture to support innovation.

For departments, agencies, and localities around the State of California it is important to drive the culture of continuous improvements. Government leaders need technology tools that allow them to move expediently and collaboratively as their mission focused agendas require. Solutions should be implemented to realize long term benefits and capture the full potential of technological innovations.

The Public Sector Network invites you to join the conversation at Government Innovation California. This one-day event will provide the ideal meeting place to learn, collaborate and discuss current trends and innovations. We will spotlight industry thought leaders and their initiatives from across the state.
