Why the event?
Public sector workplaces are undergoing dramatic transitions in how work gets done, where work takes place, what technologies and infrastructure are needed, how data is created and shared, and how all are applied in developing a cohesive culture to achieve intended results.
The DX Summit is about; “How to become digitally enabled.” This conference will offer peer to peer interaction and dialog with experts on the issues of organizational change, digital transformation, governance, and cybersecurity. Addressing these core issues will provide the solutions that can take us forward.
