Technology Innovation Showcase

Our 2021 submission period is officially closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted projects. We look forward to reviewing your work. If your project is selected for inclusion in our showcase, you can expect to hear from us later this spring.

Due to the incredible volume of submissions we receive, we are unable to contact those we have not chosen for inclusion in the showcase. We thank you for your patience while the evaluation panel reviews.

About the 2021 showcase

For the 10th consecutive year, GTA is sponsoring the Technology Innovation Showcase, which helps Georgia state agencies and local governments learn about IT projects in other agencies that are changing the way government does business. It recognizes innovative uses of technology that enable agencies to better meet constituent expectations for services and information, improve operating efficiency, and conserve tax dollars.

Project categories for 2021 are slightly different from previous years.

  • Business process innovations
  • Cross-boundary collaboration and partnerships
  • Cybersecurity
  • Data management, analytics, and visualization
  • Digital services: Government to business
  • Digital services: Government to constituent
  • Emerging and innovative technologies
  • Enterprise IT management initiatives
  • Information communications technology innovations

Projects selected for the 2021 showcase will be honored at the Georgia Digital Government Summit this year. Showcase honorees will also be highlighted in Georgia's annual state IT report, and they will be considered for submission to the National Association of State CIOs (NASCIO) State IT Recognition Awards.

Cyber Dawg, Georgia's multi-agency security exercise aimed at sharpening technical response to ransomware attacks, received a first-place award from NASCIO in 2020.
