The rise of Government 2.0 signals the emergence of IT innovation and the Web as a platform for fostering efficiencies within government and citizen participation. How can we harness these innovations to decrease waste and increase productivity? Gov 2.0 Expo brings stakeholders together to explore transformative technologies and discover new solutions.
Technology experts at Gov 2.0 Expo give government employees and contractors access to the practical tools, in-depth training, and industry contacts needed to answer the new mandate for transparency, efficiency, and cost containment across 5 topic tracks:
Data is one of the key enablers of innovation, accessibility, and transparency. These real-time case studies and techniques will show you how to demystify the sheer mass of data sets available, overcome systemic roadblocks in getting to open, use open data as the new vehicle for civic engagement, and train the next generation of Web gurus in government.
The social web is evolving into the civic web and how we communicate is changing rapidly. Hear from those spearheading innovative projects and learn how to set your social networking and collaboration strategy to improve access to information, build better communities, and increase user engagement.
Doing more with less, government agencies are learning ways to be nimble and deliver additional services with fewer resources. Get access to the latest creative solutions - from rapid app deployment and meeting increased demands for information to streamlining procurement and pioneering new models of citizen engagement. Lessons can be learned from the smallest city to the largest agency.
Moving your data from internal systems to the cloud raises a number of very serious questions, including will this increase productivity? Am I really going to save money? And perhaps most importantly, is it secure? In this track you’ll learn how to effectively and securely use the cloud to drive efficiency and cost savings across a wide variety of IT projects.
Innovation is the heart of Government 2.0 and it's happening all around us. Every day new technologies, best practices, and thought leaders emerge in the marketplace. Hear about interesting topics and different ways of thinking that can help provide immediate as well as long-term benefits.
Join us May 25-27, 2010 at the Washington Convention Center in downtown Washington, DC for this groundbreaking convergence of public/private sector and civic engagement.
