The Best in Government Innovation

digit-event-logoInnovation has become more than just a buzz word in the public sector, thanks in part to a need to do more with less. Agencies are turning to transformative technologies like the Internet of Things and big data to advance missions and better serve citizens.

So who’s driving innovation in government? What agencies are cutting-edge?

The best examples of discovery and innovation in government IT will be honored next week at the GCN dig IT awards. The October 13 event, at the Ritz-Carlton in Tysons, will showcase and recognize the best initiatives in federal, state, and local government.  It’s also a wonderful opportunity for industry to network with the top IT innovators in government.

This year’s finalists, which range from the City of Los Angeles to the Department of Homeland Security, were chosen from projects nominated across government and are solid examples of pushing the envelope and discovering creative ways to make government work better with tech.

The project categories range from innovations for cloud services, data centers, and the systems that connect them to what agencies are doing to minimize attack surfaces, automate defenses, and create an architecture for cybersecurity. The overall winner in each category will be announced at the Oct. 13 awards ceremony.

This year’s GCN dig IT awards will also include Tech Arcade, hands-on demonstrations of government agencies’ most innovative and leading-edge technologies. This is a chance to see 3D-printed weather stations, IBM’s Watson, and EPA’s toxic release inventory fast tool.
