PA TECHCON 2017 consists of 5 distinct conference tracks. Each track consists of four independent 45-minute sessions providing attendees with the flexibility of switching tracks over the course of the day to attend sessions that are of the most interest. The Tracks for PA TECHCON 2017 are:
The Security track is designed to provide IT practitioners with insight into the direction the industry is heading and how to deal with operational challenges in the security space.
The Application Development track is designed to provide IT practitioners with a well-rounded perspective on challenges like legacy modernization and ensuring application security, and a view into responsive design. The last session “Go-Live Are We Ready?” ties it all together.
This year’s Project Management track will consist of interactive, workshop based sessions. The sessions are designed to focus on challenges for technical practitioners that are often wearing the hat of Project Manager through experiential learning.
The Telecomm/Infrastructure track will focus on how to leverage technology to improve personal productivity, enable our mobile workforce, development of an agency cloud strategy and preview the exciting changes coming with Software Defined Networking (SDN).
The Agency Spotlight track will focus on how Commonwealth Agencies have successfully overcome IT challenges encountered and creatively implemented evolutionary solutions.
