The Government After Shock event was made possible, in part, through the financial support of its Platinum sponsor, Microsoft.
Across all stages of COVID-19 from react, respond, to recover, Microsoft has been, and will continue to be, a trusted partner empowering people, enhancing governments, and enabling societies. We will discuss how government services can be transformed though data and AI, how we enable remote access for services, empower cross agency collaboration, and deliver trusted and secure services. This is highlighted across our work for data & AI for good, our unique ability to advance the skills of government employees and help agencies build trust and serving as a thought leader in accessibility.
Microsoft delighted to have Dr. Julia Glidden, CVP World Wide Public Sector, participating in the panel, Data Governance for a Digitally-Enabled State, looking at what needs to be done to realize the potential of a full data-driven public sector. In addition, Microsoft is hosting a local event bringing perspectives from government, the private sector, IGOs, and NGOs on how data can be used to drive informed decision making, particularly in times of crisis.
