July 22

Watch Now

A new fiscal year has begun for the State of California and the Governor has signed a $202 billion budget. What will be its impact on information technology spending? The new budget will fund several technology projects and initiatives, but the nature of this budget is different. Times are more turbulent and it has impacted state spending. It’s critical for those who do business with California state and local government to understand the budget landscape and how the funds will be spent at the departmental level.  


Join us on July 22 where Joe Morris, e.Republic’s VP of Research, will walk you through the new budget and dive into the opportunities, trends and priorities for the year to come. He will provide actionable insights you can apply to your California state and local government marketing and sales strategies. At the end of the briefing, we will answer your most pressing questions. 


During this briefing, we will discuss: 

  • What’s included in the budget
  • How much will go to technology spending
  • What technologies the state plans to invest in
  • How the decreased budget will affect IT spending
