For over 30 years The Forum has been bringing together public and private sector IT Professionals to share knowledge and best practices in a vendor neutral, collaborative environment.

The Forum serves New York’s state and local government employees who develop, deploy, maintain, or use Information Technology; and the private sector organizations that work to meet the needs of the constantly changing public sector IT landscape.
