The President's Management Agenda and a 21st Century Government
8:35 a.m.

We face an urgent call to action to improve our Federal government.  The President’s Management (PMA) Agenda, released by the Trump Administration in March 2018, represents the starting point for aligning federal government resources with the leading practices of the private sector, academic and the “good government community”.  The intent of the PMA is to frame and focus our reform and modernization efforts to create a 21st century government.

The Emerging Technology Landscape

New and emerging technologies and digital transformation come with myriad benefits that the Federal government has just started to realize.  These new technologies include blockchain, artificial intelligence, robotics process automation, quantum computing, IoT/IoE, and more.  Hear from top Federal CIO’s where such initiatives are succeeding, where the biggest changes are coming, how they are affecting citizen relationships and information exchange, and what the biggest inhibitors are that is slowing tech transformation.
