Event Overview

Use whatever metaphor you like – a broken record, a song on repeat – but every CIO hears it and knows the tune: cut the budget, achieve more with less. The President’s budget proposed a slight decrease in federal IT spending in 2013 with many of its funded initiatives intended to realize cost savings – in future years. How are CIO’s and CFO’s able to effectively and efficiently deliver critical government services on smaller budgets in this fiscal year?

A host of departments across the government – from the DoD to DHS –are delivering value and realizing significant cost reductions today; not by launching new and complex IT programs, but by refining and redefining their current legacy systems. These systems still account for the core of agency operations, and simple measures can be taken to dramatically streamline systems capabilities and reduce operating costs, while providing a foundation for eventually transitioning agencies to other environments, such as a cloud or virtualized infrastructure.

Join 1105 Government Information Group, in partnership with Micro Focus, for an informative, real-world discussion on strategies for saving money by leveraging and extending legacy systems. This event will bring together senior government executives, as well as technology and financial leaders to share how federal agencies can cut through the rhetoric of IT fads and get to the heart of significant and immediate IT savings.

Attendees will learn:

  • What does the President’s budget and the GOP budget mean for federal IT leaders?
  • Current IT trends in the lean budget environment
  • Case studies of legacy system migration and year one savings
  • The future of the IT budget debate
  • Opinions and pragmatic approaches to extend legacy systems into the cloud
