The changes in the Federal IT landscape have been particularly dynamic during the past year. There continues to be heightened interest in virtualized environments, expanding hosted computing alternatives, and active efforts to shave the number and size of traditional data centers. These initiatives have combined not only to bring about more operational efficiencies, but they also have revolutionized traditional thinking about how to apply technology to meet agency business and mission objectives.
The motivations for the shift towards a “Cloud First” strategy are compelling—potential cost savings, flexible computing capacity, and opportunities for rapid applications deployment. In the face of agency budget and other resource constraints, the pressure to increasingly rely on cloud computing strategies is not only understandable, but undeniable.
|How then can agency leaders, technologists, and INFOSEC professionals build their confidence with cloud? What has been learned from government cloud initiatives to date to encourage the acceptance of trusted, reliable and cost-effective cloud-based alternatives? What are the options for secure private clouds available to public sector agencies?
For these answers and more,joinFederal Computer Week and Cisco for this FREE educational seminar to learn from government and industry innovators about what’s real, what’s not, and what’s coming next for trusted cloud-based environments.
You will learn how to:
- - Establish trusted cloud-based environments
- - Apply innovative thinking and technology to existing architectures
- - Incorporate trust, visibility, and resilience in government clouds
- - Begin with private cloud implementation and understand the options
Register now and come away with practical tools and strategies that you can put to work in your own organization. We look forward to seeing you on September 27th at the Willard Hotel in Washington, DC.
