On the Road to iBPM Success – 5 Can’t-Miss Sessions

The government is evolving. Gone are the days when agencies could rely on silos, desktops or legacy systems. Now the government needs to be agile, connected and empowered. How do we get there? Intelligent business process management is the key to unlocking data and unifying the enterprise.

But knowing your agency needs to evolve and actually getting there are two totally different things.

“Right now it’s a seamless experience to go to Amazon and buy things. The site is able to recommend things for you,” said Eric Wu, a senior manager at Accenture. “We want citizens to have that same connected, engaging experience when they are trying to consume government services.”

So how do you start? Where do you start? And who should you ask?

On June 8-10th, Pega is hosting their PegaWORLD conference, geared toward changing the way government thinks. The three-day conference is the largest BPM conference in the world and features a wide variety of sessions – but there’s a special track for government employees that we have the inside scoop on. Want to attend? Psst – part of PegaWORLD is free for govies. Want to go? Get your free pass here.

If you’re a government employee, here are the five can’t-miss PegaWORLD sessions that you can attend.
