This week, 8,500 IT leaders from 3,800 companies, including 3,000 CIOs, are gathering in Orlando for the 2017 Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, “the world’s most important gathering of CIOs and senior IT leaders,” according to Gartner. This year’s conference is themed on CIO leadership and business transformation with AI and is set to be Microsoft’s most transformative presence yet.

Join us at Gartner Symposium North America, where we will be discussing digital transformation and innovation, in a variety of thought leadership and solution-focused sessions as well as in 1:1 conversations with business leaders like you who are eager to engage your customers, empower your employees, optimize your operations, and transform your products and business models. Microsoft is excited to be a key sponsor of this event and bring some of our best thought leaders to meet with you to discuss how you can be a leader in transforming digitally.

Technology innovation creates operational efficiency, makes new services possible, empowers employees to make better decisions, and in short makes it possible for government agencies to re-imagine themselves. However, innovations in technology also create new expectations from citizens and new obligations around government transparency, compliance and privacy.

In the Government industry track, hear Jennifer Byrne (Chief Technology Officer, Worldwide Industry) speak about “Digital Leadership, Responsibility and Transformation in Government: a Microsoft view“.

More than ever, government leaders are expected to also be digital leaders, defining responsible use of technology not just within government operations but across commercial sectors as well. This session will explore Microsoft’s view of how technology innovations combined with regulatory requirements create opportunities for better digital leadership.

Date / Location: Sunday, Oct 1st 11:15 – 11:45 am @ Grand Harbor Salon 5, Disney’s Yacht & Beach Convention Center
