Government IT decision makers face tough challenges, but also unprecedented opportunities for providing new and improved technologies and services. They must reduce the number of data centers they operate, transition to cloud computing and shared services, improve project management, support open government, and drive IT transformation and reform—all amid intense budget pressure and unrelenting security threats. The payoff comes in the form of better, more efficient government operations, a more productive federal workforce, and improved public services.
Now in its third year, the Government IT Leadership Forum is a day-long venue where senior IT leaders in government come together to discuss how they're using technology to drive change in federal departments and agencies. Top CIOs from civilian, defense, and intelligence agencies will engage an audience of their peers in an open discussion of strategies and best practices. This year's forum will include a deep dive into what government tech teams are doing to become more agile in responding to requirements and delivering IT services. Join this exclusive gathering of government technology executives to hear first-hand how they're driving change and innovation.
Topics of discussion at the Government IT Leadership Forum will include:
Taking a "future first" approach to IT planning
Department of Defense's new IT Enterprise Strategy
What’s next in cloud computing adoption
The move to shared services and agile IT
Data center consolidation
Using the Web to improve customer service
