The Smart City: Delivering Services, Innovation & Transformation Nationwide

Guest Speakers:
Hardik Bhatt, Secretary Designate, Department of Innovation & Technology and State CIO, State of Illinois
Marian Cook, Chief Strategy Officer, Department of Innovation & Technology, State of Illinois

This year, 1.6 billion connected things were in use by smart cities, a 39% increase from 2015. Gartner defines a smart city as an urbanized area where multiple sectors cooperate to achieve sustainable outcomes through the analysis of contextual, real-time information shared among sector-specific information and operational technology systems. The result is a call for education, entrepreneurship, and innovation to help transform the ultra-connected 21st century workforce.

This webinar will explore how cities and states are transforming government and the technologies having the biggest impacts on achieving the mission.
