This roundtable of leading women in technology from both government and industry will discuss how technology is shaping and changing their organizations.
Social media and mobility both impact how the government organizations carry out their missions and operate internally. Technology changes the way government engages various groups internationally and through open data utilization. These systems are not tied to a building or a system but rather to multi avenues of information gathering and regulating data collection.
The panel will discuss how the latest advances in technology create security challenges, commoditization of IT Data Centers, centralization of existing services and the implementation of cloud and virtualization services. The workforce requirements to manage IT services, current economic funding strategies and stove-piped organizations all remain inhibitors to efficient and effective use of technology. Federal markets have seen a shift from physical products to integrated solutions, i.e. microgrids as a result of technology applications.
These women leaders will relate real world examples of how the shift to technology has not only created the increased need for highly qualified software engineers but also the trend toward more women in senior leadership positions within industry and government marketplaces.
