Technology has been put to the test over the past year like never before, and the hard-won lessons of the pandemic all point to the critical need for digital modernization to boost Federal IT capabilities, security, and citizen service.

Join General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) and MeriTalk on April 6 from 12:30 to 5 p.m. EDT to help jumpstart that journey to digital modernization at the first of three coming GDIT Emerge 2021 conference events in the company’s Signature Technology Event Series.

With billions in new funding for IT modernization and cybersecurity improvements approved by Congress in the American Rescue Plan Act, the time is now to join in the discussion with top Federal technology leaders about the modernization tasks at hand, and showcase the real technology solutions that will get the job done.

The April 6 Digital Modernization GDIT Emerge 2021 conference is bringing together senior Federal leadership that is directing the government’s digital modernization campaign. The event begins with a welcome from GDIT President Amy Gilliland and keynote address from Deputy Federal CIO Maria Roat [pending approval].

Plenary sessions to follow will share the view from top IT decision makers at Federal agencies including Department of Homeland Security Deputy CIO Beth Cappello, U.S. Air Force Deputy CIO Winston Beauchamp [pending approval], and Dominic Cussatt, acting assistant secretary for information and technology at the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Then, customize your experience with any of nine breakout panels. Topics include cloud and managed services, AI and machine learning predictive analytics, RPA applications, software defined networks, DevSecOps, and 5G technologies.

Finally, industry and government leaders will point the way forward in a concluding Tech Vision panel that features Krista Kinnard, chief of emerging technologies at the Department of Labor, and Brig. Gen. Chad Raduege, director of cyberspace and information dominance and CIO at the Headquarters Air Combat Command, U.S. Air Force.

The April 6 digital modernization event is the first of three virtual events in the GDIT Emerge 2021 virtual event series. Join us on May 26 for the second event in the series focusing on emerging technology, and again on June 23 for the final conference on defense cloud.
