Experience an objective, strategic digital public-sector perspective

How governments pursue digital transformation is evolving as governments grapple with leadership and societal expectations for the use of data and technology. Different patterns are emerging, but at the heart of each pattern remains the truth that data is key. Each pattern has inherent opportunities and risks, but essential to success are solid foundational practices in such key areas as funding and governance.

Program highlights

Public-sector CIOs get to explore these patterns, take a new look at foundational practices and learn from expectational examples of digital government.

The Gartner IT Symposium/Xpo™ 2023 conference is the premier conference for CIOs and IT executives tasked with leading a digital-first organization. Whether you’re looking to validate your strategy, enhance your professional network or simply reconnect with peers face-to-face, the conference journey is curated to meet your goals and provide guidance in the areas most meaningful to your organization.
