Reshaping the Government Technology Ecosystem
Rafael Lopez, Accenture
Dan Hon, CfA Summit Co-Chair
Greg Gershman, AdHoc 
Marquis Carbrera, IBM
Three years after the launch of Healthcare.gov, the market for government IT and other services continues to evolve to meet the needs of a digital age. What do we learn from new models and partnerships, especially from how traditional vendors and a new breed of startups are working together? What still needs to happen to build a system that works for government, for the vendors, and most importantly, for the American public? A candid conversation about what's working, what's not, and a reminder of what's at stake.

Congress noticed, and wanted to know why the Air Force was still doing it the old way. This is a story of change that goes from the very small to the very big, and like all the stories at the CfA Summit, it’s just the beginning.

Cecilia Muñoz, New America, former Domestic Policy Council Director

Lynn Overmann, Arnold Foundation
DJ Patil, former U.S. Chief Data Scientist
Beth Blauer, Executive Director at Johns Hopkins University Center for Government Excellence
When you’re committed to using data to make government work better, you’ll likely be doing this from both inside government and outside at various times. What tactics work best from each vantage point?
