The way information technology is consumed in America has changed many times over the past 50 years. Today’s model of IT consumption is transforming how information technology is being applied within government agencies and educational institutions — with wide-ranging implications for security, data availability, and collaboration.
Join our panel of government and education IT leaders from around the country as they discuss what IT consumption means, how it’s changing, and its impact on government and education organizations.
Moderated by Steve LeSueur of 1105 Public Sector Media Group and featuring Shawn McCarthy, Research Director of IDC Government Insights, the panel will leverage findings from IDC’s recent report as well as use cases to explore:
- What is “Shadow IT” and how is it impacting the missions of public sector organizations?
- What are the implications on security, data availability, and portability?
- Do collaboration, data availability, and reliable network management have an economic impact on the public sector?
- Is it better for most public sector organizations to build their own solutions or to buy turnkey (or nearly turnkey) solutions?
You’ll learn practical advice and tools you can put to work in your own organization to address:
- Commodity clouds vs. traditional build-your-own IT Architectures
- Enterprise licensing
- Application Centric Infrastructure
- Software Defined Network
- The Internet of Everything
