This workshop continues our series of programs developed for military and government professionals to demonstrate how advances in the commercial industries can benefit the military and government sectors. The atmosphere for the workshop is interactive with attendee participation welcome.
Opportunities offered by services in the cloud may provide cost-efficient alternatives to business as usual based on traditional methods. While security and reliability are concerns for everyone, issues such as procurement policies can impact the implementation of new services in government. More importantly, the lack of common operating standards across government agencies may slow the deployment of new more efficient commercial technologies such as cloud computing.
This program will define issues facing agencies as they look toward implementation of cloud services. Expert presentations based on case studies will then show how commercial industries are dealing with similar concerns, lessons learned along the way and the budgetary impact.
Following the case studies, panels of government and commercial professionals will discuss ways that cloud services are evolving to meet a variety of needs while satisfying outside-the-wall concerns for mission-critical content.
Our partner in this program is the Distributed Computing Industry Association. DCIA is focused on commercial advancement of cloud computing and related technologies, particularly as they are deployed for the delivery of high-value content.
