Cloud & Virtualization Conference

CloudCloud computing activity is rapidly changing IT architectures in government and industry. It is being used to support data center consolidation and other cost sharing initiatives, as well as facilitating more rapid deployment of OMB’s Future First efforts. On one hand, there are significant concerns with controls over data, security, and reliability. On the other hand, government could get faster benefit from technology via cloud computing services, which are bought using O&M funds, rather than having to wait more than two years to complete capital budgeting procedures.

So, where is your agency in this process? The Cloud & Virtualization Conference at FOSE 2012 will look at the latest issues facing the federal government, the best practices presented by agencies at the forefront of the cloud model, and what you need to know about the new Cloud Roadmap issued by the National Institute of Standards & Technology. This conference will give you insights into government private cloud successes, commercial leading practices in use of Software-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service, and Governance, Risk and Compliance issues affecting the federal IT community in implementing Federal cloud guidance.
