Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Minnesota Digital Government Summit is designed to do just that. The summit has an advisory board that gathers public- and private-sector leaders to create an agenda designed to make that passion 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 the timely topics discussed in the numerous breakout sessions to help advance the goals of their organizations.
If you influence or participate in technology decisions or implementations at any level, you will want to attend. Don't miss this opportunity to see the latest in digital government solutions, keep abreast of current policy issues, and network with key government executives, technologists and industry specialists.
Registration is $25 for all government employees!

Transforming Digital Communications

Location Based Services/GIS
Geography, space, location, place. With a mobile device in hand, consumers want information about what or who is near them, their current location is the center of focus. Whether it’s a public utility worker trying to visualize an underground pipe and run a network analysis to find the valves which feed the pipe beneath, or you are simply trying to see which friends are nearby -- with mobile everything is about location. This session will cover the latest technologies and showcase examples of successful location based services in government.
