    Data gets a bad reputation as something relegated to spreadsheets and useful only to "the numbers people." Yet data can play a vital role in understanding the world around us and changing that world for the better. In an effort to increase transparency and drive civic innovation, many states have created open data portals for citizens to access, review and use data. New data visualization tools are pushing this concept even further; allowing citizens to interact with government data in a new way and to create their own visualizations with open data. States leading in these efforts will share planning and implementation tips, lessons learned and best practices around open data, public-facing dashboards and data visualization.

    As needs and requirements in state government technology continue to evolve and the state IT sector is increasingly asked to provide higher level of services at ever smaller budgets, state IT needs to evolve and seek new service delivery models for state departments as well as constituents they serve. The fastest growing delivery model that most states are adopting is a shift to cloud based services. This discovery session will feature panelists from the state community to discuss their experiences, lessons learned in realizing cost savings and practicalities of using cooperative cloud contracts and will compare and contrast different models (state, third party, federal, etc.)
