Technology enabling the business of government

Technology Innovation Showcase

For the seventh consecutive year, GTA is sponsoring the Technology Innovation Showcase as a way to recognize innovative uses of technology in state and local government agencies in Georgia and to share ideas, experiences, and lessons learned.

The deadline for submissions was March 9, 2018.

The showcase includes 10 project categories:

  • Cross-boundary Collaboration and Partnerships
  • Cybersecurity
  • Digital Government – Government to Business
  • Digital Government – Government to Citizen
  • Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
  • Emerging and Innovative Technologies
  • Enterprise IT Management Initiatives
  • Improving State or Local Government Operations
  • Information Communications Technology Innovations
  • Open Government and Data, Information, and Knowledge Management

In selecting projects to receive top honors, the evaluation panel focuses on the level of innovation in addressing a specific business problem and the significance of the project to improving operating efficiency, saving money, and enhancing service delivery.

Projects selected for the 2018 showcase by the evaluation panel will be honored at the Georgia Digital Government Summit on September 20 in Atlanta. In addition, showcase honorees will be included in the state of Georgia's Annual State IT Report, and they will be considered for submission to the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) for its 2018 State IT Recognition Awards, the Technology Association of Georgia's Excalibur Awards, and others.

Three showcase projects went on to earn NASCIO recognition in 2017, including a coveted first place award for the Georgia Division of Child Support Services. Projects from the Georgia Department of Transportation and the Department of Revenue were finalists in NASCIO's awards program.
