Global enterprises today, including Federal Government agencies, rely on delivering services and enabling internal operations with the use of trusted Web-based applications. At the same time, users increasingly demand secure access to resources that allow them to conduct their business online—whenever, wherever, and however they choose. These reinforcing trends have accelerated in recent years—in part large attributable to the rapid implementation of mobile devices and cloud computing capabilities across the public and private sectors.  In addition, the U.S. Government has launched several IT initiatives that require agencies to engineer more customer-centric, efficient, transparent, and secure operating environments.

Given this combination of factors, it is essential for those providing information and services online to ensure users are having the customer experience they intend. System managers need the ability to scale Web applications as evolving missions dictate and monitor performance for timely and accurate information access anytime, anywhere, and in the formats suitable for the growing number of device types they support.
How can government professionals keep up with the pace of IT change and make appropriate adjustments to continually improve their Web-based applications?  One pro-active step is to join Akamai and its partners on November 13 in Washington, DC for a valuable, focused overview of the current and emerging technology trends and strategies for optimizing your agency’s online operations.  Attendees will interact directly with public sector and industry experts who will cover:

  • How innovation is changing the information access landscape and delivering on the promise of “anytime and anywhere”
  • The realities and opportunities for deploying advanced digital government applications 
  • Key considerations for ensuring network integrity in today’s threat-rich operating environments
  • What every IT professional needs to know about mobile computing in 2012, and how it will continue to evolve 
  • Decision-support information for agency cloud alternatives—and how to decide what data and applications are most suitable for hosted computing

Bring your questions and your experience to this valuable professional education and networking program designed for government program management, IT, and security professionals—and leave with a deeper understanding of what’s now and what’s next.

As part of this dialogue, attendees will hear from John Palfrey, Professor and Vice Dean for Library and Information Resources at the Harvard Law School, who will discuss his recently-published book, Interop:  The Promise and Perils of Highly Interconnected Systems.  His remarks will provide a one-time opportunity to hear about the “immense importance of interoperability…and how this principle is the key to success in the coming decades,” and the first 100 attendees will receive a copy of his new book.

Reserve your seat today—this program is offered at no charge to government and industry professionals, but space is limited.  We look forward to meeting you in Washington, DC on November 13 and helping you develop your online business strategy for 2013 and beyond.
