This panel discussion will delve into these factors impeding government effectiveness and how agencies are driving deep and significant performance improvement in an era of seismic change.

Modernizing IT to Deliver a 21st Century Citizen Experience

Clyde's of Gallery Place (map)

Join AFFIRM on October 26 for our monthly speaker series.

Each month, our speaker series brings a panel of government experts to discuss cutting-edge issues in the Federal IT community.

The Federal government’s ability to adopt technologically advanced, cutting edge digital services is hampered by an aging IT infrastructure coupled with heavy spending on operations and maintenance.  These budgetary strains leave little room for innovation and modernization, resulting in outdated methods of providing citizens with the services they need.
This panel will discuss initiatives across government that are transforming workforce performance, service delivery, budgetary savings and modernization efforts today.
