Unlike the private sector, the wave of SaaS and cloud software innovation is only just beginning to hit the public sector.
A transformation is coming to gov-tech as technology that allows government applications to update continuously, scale, integrate, react at lightning speed, have exceptional user interfaces, and be able to handle modifications, updates, and upgrades with minimal to no IT intervention.In this webinar, listeners will learn:
- An overview of new technologies, coding languages, and more that will change the GovTech space like Dockerization, Kubernetes, React and Redux.
- An honest look at the following software implementation styles: On-Prem, Single-Tenant, and Multi-Tenant
- Difference between old-school and new-school government technology - and what that means for your government
- How new technologies will benefit your government and make life easier on your IT team
Meet the speakers
Nicole Guttridge (OpenGov customer)
IT Administrator, City of Elk Grove, CA
Nicole has worked at the City since 2002. She graduated from Oregon State University with a Business Administration degree that included an option in Management Information Systems. Her minor in multi-media has proved useful when looking for user-friendly ways to display data. She enjoys collaborating with staff to solve problems and tackle big ideas with the help of technology.
Over time, Nicole’s big projects have evolved from converting data into software programs to managing the City’s IT department and budget. Last year, Nicole was a part of Elk Grove’s Bloomberg Foundation Mayor’s Challenge team where she had the opportunity to consider new ways to address affordable housing problems with technology. The project offered private sector dollars to encourage out of the box thinking and risk taking. Diving deeper into how we think and process data was a key project takeaway for Nicole that has become a skill she uses every day to create new workflows and processes using technology.
