"Now is an exciting and challenging time in California. California residents and businesses increasingly expect the state to delivery valuable services quickly, cheaply and transparently. Our Legislative and Administrative officials are addressing these challenges with a renewed commitment to the role that information technology plays, and it is essential that we maintain a healthy dialogue between our government leaders and IT professionals so that our State plans for the future while addressing the needs of today."
— Teri Takai, CIO, State of California

Conference Highlight: A Case Study Panel on Utah
Many states are using the economic lull as a time to reflect and plan for government delivery in the years ahead. This panel will be a case study presented by those who are boldly leading Utah with innovative programs and policy. They will share key components of their strategic vision and how they are planning for delivering 21st century government. Utah has led the nation in innovative policy from its four day work week to over 750 online government services. The executive leadership has carefully tied economic policy to workforce planning right on down to a kindergarten classroom. An annual $424 million IT budget supports the state.
The conference will provide current ideas from public sector leaders around strategies for policy and budget to transform government and modernize critical business systems.
