Seminar Overview

Federal Government agencies develop, manage and secure a range of sophisticated computer networks to enable their business operations and meet mission objectives. Yet understanding if networks are optimized for specific organizational needs is increasingly challenging, costly, and difficult to know for those charged with responsibility for ensuring networks are highly available, secure, and reliable.

Planned as a technical briefing focused on the network and data center manager, this program will bring together subject matter experts to address how to architect and evolve networks that are most effective for your agency, how to evaluate resiliency and performance, and how to help control costs and plan for future upgrades. This is an ideal opportunity to understand your current infrastructure’s capabilities, and how to evolve its ability to continually support your requirements as your organization migrates to broader use of mobile and cloud-based applications.

Attendees will learn more about:

  • The state of networking technology today—and how to make sure your network works for you—not the reverse
  • What can reasonably be automated and how to evaluate your network’s readiness for this transition
  • Definitions for Software-Defined Networks (SDN) and their expected impact on government computing architectures
  • How to integrate “cloud-ready” component into your existing infrastructure—implications and opportunities
  • The business case for upgrading key elements of your computing architecture—and how to save downstream operations and maintenance expense
  • Five variables you must understand about network performance and security today

Plan to attend this jargon-free technical tutorial to expand your professional understanding of this critically important element to your government enterprise infrastructure. Bring your thoughts, questions, and recommendations to share with colleagues and technology experts—and advance the discussion in your agency about network readiness for cloud computing, big data, and mobile government in 2013.
