How much time makes for the right investment to learn something powerful and new about the latest waves of emerging technologies that are driving change in government IT? We’re betting that if you have just 20 minutes to spare for the GDIT Emerge 2021 virtual conference on emerging technologies on May 26, the juice will be well worth the squeeze.

That’s because the half-day conference that begins at 12:30 p.m. EDT and concludes at 5 p.m. features 12 separate 20-minute “Enlightening Round” sessions that pack a big punch as some of the most innovative companies in the space will showcase their latest advancements that are changing the game in government technology transformation.

The Enlightening Rounds cover four key emerging technology areas – cybersecurity, cloud, artificial intelligence (AI), and DevSecOps. With the Biden administration pushing hard on the first two of those issues in its Cybersecurity Executive Order issued earlier this month, the topics could hardly be more timely and relevant. Likewise, DevSecOps continues to become the defacto tech development standard in an increasingly dangerous security landscape, and AI is in high growth mode as the key technology for breakthroughs in data analysis.

In addition to the Enlightening Rounds, GDIT Emerge also brings to the virtual stage key Federal government technology decision-makers and practitioners to explain how they are applying emerging tech to solve real-world problems.

First up, Commerce Department CIO Andre Mendes and Tim Persons, chief scientist-science, technology, assessment, and analytics at the Government Accountability Office, will talk about the need for cyber resilience, and how agencies can put cutting-edge technologies to work to better combat threats and keep networks safe.

Then, a panel of Federal tech experts – Nuclear Regulatory Commission Deputy CIO Scott Flanders, Small Business Administration Chief Technology Officer Sanjay Gupta, and Mason McDaniel, CTO at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives – will discuss how Federal agencies are working to harness emerging technologies to improve their operations. Wondering about AI, machine learning, robotic process automation, and 5G? You’ve come to the right panel.

Don’t get us wrong – we want you to stay all afternoon at GDIT Emerge 2021 and learn about everything. But if you give can only give us 20, we’re saving a seat for you too.  Make sure to pick up some CPE credits along the way, and make your arrangements at GDIT Emerge 2021.
