MISA Ontario 2023: Annual Conference and Trade Show
2023 MISA Conference and Trade Show
MISA, The Municipal Information Systems Association was founded on the concepts of sharing best practices, collaboration, and volunteerism within the municipal sector. MISA is made up of members of the municipal sector as well as IT & Communications organizations across North America.
As a proud member of MISA, the Edgeworx team looks forward to attending the annual conference and trade show every year. The MISA conference is an excellent opportunity to discuss industry topics, best practices, network, and reconnect with clients, partners, and innovators alike.
This year was no different! The 2023 Conference was held in Blue Mountain Village. MISA brought in some influential speakers from all walks of life. Speakers ranged from IT and Cyber Security experts to influential municipal members from various municipalities across Ontario.
Speakers spoke about industry topics and what's next for municipalities. Topics ranged from digital transformation to IT strategic planning, and how to use automation and technology to simplify and improve municipal offerings to their respective communities.
AI, Artificial Intelligence was a hot topic this year! Speakers discussed best practices on how to use AI to improve and streamline offerings while also how the increased use of technology brings on more IT risks from cyber attacks, human error, and ransomware.
Forward thinking and proactive discussions is what allows MISA members to grow and succeed despite rapidly changing environments.
Municipalities and IT
It is truly exciting to witness the transformation of municipalities through the incorporation of IT. Municipalities are the backbone of any city or town, responsible for providing essential services to the citizens. With the rapid advancements in technology, it is no surprise that municipalities are also embracing IT to streamline their operations and provide better services. The integration of IT in municipalities has brought about significant improvements in various areas.
We at Edgeworx value our unique opportunity to make direct impacts on the lives of Canadians through our partnership with municipalities across Ontario. By guiding our communities towards strategic, effective use of technology and systems, we work together to build a stronger, more connected community and local economy.
