Cloud Content Management at the Center of Government Modernization Excellence

Government agencies are facing ever increasing challenges to modernize and engage with citizens and stakeholders through digital channels. But you can’t just flip a switch to become a digital government. Change like that takes new tools, new processes and a new way of thinking. Essentially, you need to transform the way you work.

But with regulations, security concerns and diminishing resources that can be easier said than done. That’s where cloud content management can help you and your agency.

Join us on Thursday, October 25 from 8:00am - 12:30pm ET at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. for an interactive, half-day event as we share how your agency can truly become a digital agency.

Specifically, you will leave the event understanding:

  • How to effectively and securely manage your content flow with cloud.
  • Why modernizing your content management is necessary to improve employee productivity, increase efficiency and deliver better services to citizens.
  • How tools like Box make it easy to collaborate from anywhere, at any time.
  • Next steps your agency needs to take to become a digital agency.
