Government Some of you are in the midst of modernizing government, others are gathering resources to dive into digital transformations, and many of you realize that your digital experiences can be improved upon — but, you have no idea where to begin the journey. Whatever stage you’re in, there is tremendous opportunity in gathering insight into how others are tackling the same types of challenges in government that you’re facing. In Conclusion As in previous years, Adobe Summit 2017 has tons to offer: the latest trends in technology; industry sessions, research, and solutions; tried-and-true methods for increasing customer satisfaction, engagement, and brand loyalty; new strategies for not only connecting with consumers, but also cultivating long-term relations with them; multiple opportunities to rub elbows with and learn from your peers; and so much more.
