The next big conference we’re attending is right in our backyard! The Los Angeles (LA) Digital Government Summit is one of many regional events hosted by Government Technology and takes place from August 30-31, 2016. The conference is attended by public sector IT professionals looking to discuss digital government trends and emerging technologies in the field. Here are three reasons why we’re excited to attend #GovTechLive:
1. Current and Relevant Discussion Topics
The key topics at the LA Digital Government Summit are selected by an advisory board comprised of local government IT professionals and top influencers in the industry. The team of experts curate the content for the conference each year and shares it on the conference website, so that attendees can be certain they will get the most out of their experience at #GovTechLive. Topics for 2016 include, “The Future of Cybersecurity,” “Open Data 101” and the “Internet of Things, Smart Cities, and Its Impact on Government.”
2. Los Angeles’s Excellence in Technology Awards
Each year, the LA Digital Government Summit honors Los Angeles cities and counties that have implemented innovative technology initiatives in the public sector. It’s always exciting to hear about the latest local achievements in government technology, and we expect to see plenty of new advancements at the 2016 awards ceremony.
3. LA County Sheriff’s Department Sessions
While there are many notable speakers presenting at #GovTechLive, we are especially excited to hear from the LA County Sheriff’s Department (LASD). Deputy Andres Bilbao of the Personnel Administration Bureau will share how Laserfiche ECM helped the LASD automate their hiring process in the “Leveraging Innovation Without Constraints” session at 2:15 PM. Before the conference begins, check out the LASD case study to learn how the organization is using Laserfiche ECM to rebuild its outdated hiring process, target and hire top-tier talent and reduce the amount of time and paper required to hire deputy sheriffs.
We’re excited to attend the many informative sessions at #GovTechLive this year, and we’ll also be looking forward to networking with our government IT peers. Be sure to bring plenty of business cards and set aside some time to speak with presenters, attendees and vendors. You never know where you may hear about a useful tip or potential solution for your organization.
At the conference, stop by booth #8 to visit Laserfiche and learn more about our presence in the public sector. For more information about how governments can use technology to boost productivity, download a copy of the complimentary white paper entitled, “The New Answer to ‘Do More with Less.’”
