Across 2020, governments have pivoted strategies, initiated rapid adoption of new technologies, and re-envisioned civic engagement. With budgets tightening, there’s no turning back. Governments must continue modernizing to automate key processes, operate more efficiently, and continue to reach all members of their communities with the information and services they need.
Join Granicus and Guest Speaker Curt Savoie, Director of the Global Smart Cities Strategies program at the International Data Corporation (IDC) — a premier global provider of market intelligence and advisory services for the information technology industry – for a deep dive on how IT leaders can better steward the massive change efforts underway and prioritize the projects with the greatest impact to the citizen and government worker experience, starting with the public meeting process.
