Mobile technologies have undeniably transformed federal agency operations — and the pace of change is relentless. Recent advances in new technologies such as virtual reality, Internet of Things and 5G networks are opening up new avenues for increased capability and enhanced productivity, bringing work closer to the mission edge than ever before. At the same time, increasingly sophisticated cybersecurity threats are forcing agencies to navigate a delicate balance between mobile usability and security.

The Managing Government Technology (MGT) Act, which was signed into law in the final weeks of 2017, is also adding urgency and funding to modernization efforts as agencies look to replace aging systems and maximize technology infrastructure investments. Federal IT departments need to understand how to navigate their digital transformations in a way that allows them to embrace new technologies and empower employees.

On March 14, 2018, at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., federal leaders and industry experts will come together at the Federal Innovation Summit to address these issues head-on and discuss a wide range of cutting-edge topics — from endpoint security to immersive training.
