Watch Now

As we watch the “new normal” unfold, state and local budgets are becoming more fluid than ever. Despite the federal stimulus funds provided by the CARES act, states and localities will face significant fiscal pressures. Regardless of cutbacks, technology will play a key role in helping mitigate these losses through a variety of solutions such as automation, security, mobility and cloud. State and local government agencies will also leverage new federal funding streams, shoring up revenue to implement new technology. Join us on May 19 at 11 am PT/2 pm ET where we will provide an update on the state and local government market, discuss key trends, explore potential opportunities and help guide your government sales and marketing strategies now and in the future. 

This webinar will cover:

  • The current fiscal condition of state and local government
  • How agencies will harness technology to meet the “new normal”
  • How companies can best position themselves in the current public sector environment

Chief Innovation Officer, e.Republic

Dustin Haisler is the Chief Innovation Officer for e.Republic. As the finance director and later CIO for Manor, TX, a small city outside Austin, Haisler quickly built a track record and reputation as an early innovator in civic tech. A member of Code for America’s original steering committee, Haisler pioneered government use of commercial technologies not before used in the public sector – including Quick-Response (QR) barcodes, crowdsourcing and gamification. In 2010 Haisler launched Manor Labs, a website that let residents submit their own ideas and vote other peoples’ ideas up or down. The most popular suggestions went to city officials for review and possible implementation. Haisler looked to the private sector to help broaden the adoption of these and other civic innovations, joining California-based Spigit as director of government innovation.
