Federal Cloud Computing Summit

December 10th, 2013 · 1 Comment · amarc, government 2.0

AMARC, www.amarcedu.org, is hosting our next Federal Cloud Computing Summit, http://www.cloudfedsummit.com/, December 17 at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington DC.

We will have panels on Innovation Today, Cloud Acquisition Solutions, Security Harmonization, and one I will moderate about Cloud Computing futures. In addition, we will have a presentation from Mitre of their Cloud Collaboration Sessions being held the afternoon before. They are looking at four government challenges:

  • Interoperability & Portability
  • End-to-End Service Delivery
  • Federal-Wide Standards for Service Level Agreements (SLAs)
  • Cyber Security

Panelists include Joe Klimavicz, CIO for NOAA; Marina Martin, CTO for the VA; and Mark Day, Acting Deputy Assistant Commissioner, GSA ITS. The Security Harmonization Panel includes Jeff Eisensmith, CISO, DHS; Maria Roat, FedRAMP Director, GSA; and John Streufert, Director, Federal Resilence, DHS.

The panel I am moderating also looks to be pretty interesting. We have three professors focusing on different aspects of the Cloud Computing future:

  • Dr. Irena Bojanova, looking at the future of Cloud Computing itself
  • Dr. Adam Porter, focusing on the future of training delivery and education
  • Dr. David Rogers, who will examine issues associated with data sharing

We have just added Chris Kemp, the former NASA CTO, to the panel who will bring a perspective from both inside and outside Government to the discussion.

As a heads-up, we will host our next Federal Mobile Computing Summit, January 22,  http://www.mobilefeds.com/. More details about that in a future post.
