APHSA ISM conference 2016

September 18-20, 2016 Phoenix, AZ

Cool Solutions In The Valley Of The Sun

Accenture is proud to once again be a sponsor of the annual American Public Human Services Association (APHSA) IT Solutions Management (ISM) Conference. This event provides an excellent time for human services practitioners from across the country to come together to discuss how technology is continuously reshaping human services delivery—from automation and service-oriented architecture to business process improvement and emerging technologies.

As technology is a foundation for 21st century human services programs, the issues discussed at the conference have strong resonance in today’s environment.

The conference presents important updates on IT trends and innovations. Speakers represent state and county governments, industry experts, federal program officials, and Congressional staff. Working collaboratively with the private sector, the ISM Board strives to develop a non-sales, information oriented agenda that addresses topical issues and challenges facing our membership.
