Technology has unlocked growth, collaboration, and improvement among the State’s agencies and departments. However, we are still faced with challenges like limited resources, communication breakdowns, and security concerns. The second annual Government Modernization Summit addressed how New York’s State and local governments can fully take advantage of technological innovation. We know it's time to streamline government, cut inefficiencies, and enhance effectiveness by evaluating ways to cut government red tape, making it easier to do business.

Keeping Up With Evolving Technology
Governments at all levels have been notoriously criticized for moving at a sluggish pace, but technology is getting faster and stronger every day. How can city and state agencies ensure that they’re working with the best and most up-to-date systems? Should the NY government be creating even more roles within its departments for tech-minded people? How are automated systems like Artificial Intelligence being used in New York? We discuss ways private companies can assist in bridging the technology gap and assist in making these agencies stronger.

Achieving Strategic Innovation with Data
Sharing data is necessary for top government performance throughout government agencies, and departments. However, implementing successful data sharing programs have proven to be challenging. Leveraging data and updated performance metrics are helping make city government more efficient, transparent, and accountable. Our panel will speak about leveraging data to improve systems to better serve New Yorkers by building better tools/infrastructure within the agency to track the impact of various factors and how financial institutions can better serve the population at large, and in particular more vulnerable or underserved New Yorkers.
Upgrading Infrastructure in New York
The over $300 billion infrastructure plan invested in New York is being used to modernize mass transit systems, construct affordable housing, build new schools, promote an equitable healthcare system, and support a sustainable energy future. How is NY maximizing this investment in the State to modernize infrastructure systems, create jobs and grow the economy? What role does technology and innovation play in every aspect of New York’s infrastructure systems, and how can an easy path to modernization be implemented within budget constraints?
Modernization Tools to Help All New Yorkers
New York is driving high-impact interventions to modernize communities to make them safer, smarter, healthier and to make it possible to increase economic redevelopment. Digital accessibility and fast and secure broadband is also an important requirement that all state and city governments and companies must be compliant with. These are also important to all New Yorkers in general as well. We will discuss ways to impact all of our communities through the use of technology and innovation that help develop NY's economy and living situations.
