Vivek Kundra, Executive Vice President, Salesforce Industries, Public Sector, and formerly the first CIO of the United States, will be among the speakers.

Among the subjects to be covered is Philadelphia's recently upgraded 311 system, which delivers services across social media, mobile devices, on the web, in the cloud and via phone call or in person visit to the service center.
