Session 1: Empower People

Government Keynote 1: Investing in the Future of the Government Workforce
  • Greg Chavarria City Manager Fort Lauderdale, Florida
People are what drives agencies forward. It’s people who are responsible for delivering services that keep this country running. But oftentimes, it’s people who are often overlooked when it comes to planning for the future of an organization. In this keynote, you will hear from a government leader about how their organization is planning to train their workforce for the future of public sector work.

Lightning Keynote 1: The Argument for Continuous Modernization
  • Damien Eversmann, Chief Architect for Education, Red Hat
The way IT achieves modernization is broken. Modernization "initiatives" are usually time-boxed, marked by large budget allocations and require all hands on deck to finish. But this approach is riddled with issues, not the least of which is that when the "initiative" is over, the organization ceases to be modernized. In this lightning keynote, you'll learn from an industry leader the argument for continuous modernization.

Lightning Keynote 2: Better Together: How Governments and Industry Partners Can Redefine the Hybrid Work Experience
  • Dan Klanderman, Director, UC & Collaboration Practice, Iron Bow Technologies
  • Ket Hum, Collaboration Sales Specialist, Cisco
  • Tyler Osgood, Technical Solution Architect, Cisco
Government agencies are operating in a dramatically different fashion than they were four years ago. For most government organizations, hybrid work is the name of the game. However, figuring out how to collaborate and truly work better together in today’s hybrid environment isn’t easy. In this lightning keynote, hear from industry tech experts about how agencies can leverage the latest best practices and solutions for a more seamless hybrid work experience.

1-2.30 p.m. ET/10-11:30 a.m. PT
Session 2: Empower Strategy and Technology

Government Keynote 2: What Can and Should Be Changed?
  • Tina M. Donbeck, Vice President and Chief Information Officer, U.S. International Development Finance Corporation
Government agencies cannot and honestly should not modernize every system and process at the same time. It’s impossible. So that begs the question: How, when and what should be updated or changed to meet future mission objectives? In this lightning keynote, you will hear lessons learned from a newish CIO who tried to and in some cases had to tackle it all!!!

Lightning Keynote 3: Ditch the Silos For Good
  • Darryn Graham, Solution Architect, Software AG Government Solutions
  • Fabien Sanglier, Chief Solutions Architect, Software AG Government Solutions
Government networks are complicated, with layers upon layers of code, applications, security and more. Often, agencies will look to update or modernize one part of that network, but that singular approach creates silos that make it harder for the network as a whole to innovate. So what can be done? In this lightning keynote, you will learn how Super iPaaS can help agencies streamline their systems into a single pane of glass.

Lightning Keynote 4: People and Technology Powered Together
  • Winston Chang, Chief Technology Officer for Global Public Sector, Snowflake
A Red Queen effect is a new mental model that postures that if you're not moving forward fast, you'll be left behind. But that mentality is more difficult to meet in the public sector where the pace of change is slow. In this lightning keynote, you will hear from an industry leader about technology's rapid iterations and how agencies can utilize their data, adaptability and agility to stay on pace.

Government Keynote 3: Agencies Need to Invest in the Future – When Tech Can Help
  • LeAnn Oliver, Director, Office of Corporate Business Systems, Department of Energy
Technology can fundamentally transform how government works. However, there are key areas where new technology can be the most impactful. In this keynote, you will hear from a government leader about where and when to invest in technology.
