Cloudera Government Forum

April 25, 2017 Exploring the path to a more data-driven government will be the focus of the 2017 Cloudera Government Forum, planned for April 25, 2017, at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. Government organizations have enormous data resources. Agency leaders and program management professionals seek practical, secure, and effective methods to extract the valuable information captured in their data repositories—from legacy systems to real-time. In its sixth year, the Cloudera Government Forum is an annual gathering to discover what’s new and what’s next for data management and advanced analytics strategies that can be applied for an immediate and positive impact on organizations and missions.

Cross-Government Cyber Collaboration

April 20, 2017 Any organization, including the United States government, is only as strong as its weakest link. As the amount of data we collect, analyze, and store proliferates, the risk of cyber attacks significantly increases. In a time when state and local technology systems are interconnected and share sensitive data with each other and federal databases, cybersecurity along with entire information chain is essential. Join Route Fifty and Nextgov as we down with state and federal officials to discuss the cross-government cybersecurity resources available to technology managers at all levels of government and how each individual, department, and organization can effectively strengthen their cyber defense.

The DNA of a Responsive, Data-Driven Government

April 18, 2017 Across the country, governments are increasingly harnessing data and emphasizing performance to achieve their goals, while partnering with each other and the private sector to better understand and apply the available information. Join Route Fifty in Denver, Colorado to explore the data-centric strategies and tactics used to inform decision-making, enhance the citizen experience with government services, and increase community engagement.

The Way Forward for Navy Cybersecurity

April 3, 2017 In fiscal 2015, there were 30 million known malicious intrusion attempts on Department of Defense networks, many of which targeted U.S. Navy systems. For naval networks and ships, what once were threats have become reality. At this event, we’ll focus on the Navy’s changing cybersecurity strategy amid an influx of bad actors and cyber-adversaries. In addition, we’ll explore how other initiatives, including its pending cloud-first policy and the NGEN Recompete, may affect cybersecurity across the department.

Security in the Age of IoT

March 30, 2017 While the Internet of Things (IoT) promises greater efficiency, the proliferation of so many connected devices widens the threat vector for those seeking to steal, alter, or cause harm to the IoT ecosystem. As IoT moves full speed ahead with its rapid growth and complexity, agencies face significant pressure to enhance data at the edge without compromising mission performance. Devices operating at their network’s “edge” demand particular attention, as their mobility and independence from core infrastructures challenge traditional security measures. Acknowledging the IoT is critical to executing your agency’s mission, are you confident that these devices are secure?

The True Power of a Digital Government

March 30, 2017 As the desire for personalized interactions with the federal government increases, agencies and departments are exploring efforts to better deliver citizen- and business-focused digital government. In recent years, federal initiatives have helped agencies make substantial strides in improving digital service delivery while also improving mission outcomes. Amid the transition to a new administration, how will the federal government continue its digital transformation? During this event, we’ll sit with experts to discuss how their teams are using innovative thinking to deliver great digital government and meet the constantly changing needs of their constituents.

Tech Refresh: Out with the Old

March 29, 2017 The Department of Defense uses 8-inch floppy disk drives to manage nuclear forces. The Treasury Department has 56-year-old computer code to update taxpayer accounts. And the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Veterans Affairs rely on COBOL for a number of their agency functions. To address these aging systems, in October 2016 the Office of Management and Budget proposed a series of guidelines to help agencies assess their IT modernization needs. But as federal workers determine how to refresh their technology during 2017, they’ll need to parse through the good and the bad that comes with old legacy systems and determine what comes next.

Tech + Tequila: All in on AI

March 23, 2017 Brace yourselves: Artificial intelligence is becoming mainstream. Equipped with the capability to collect, compute, and crunch data faster, AI offers exciting possibilities in fields as varied as cybersecurity and customer service, among numerous others. At this Tech + Tequila, we’ll look at government efforts to lead the way in AI, explore how agencies are beginning to use these technologies today, and discuss what their implications are for the future.

Adapt Faster to Changing Conditions

March 14, 2017 Inflexible infrastructure and management capabilities make it difficult to transform IT infrastructure into a cloud-service-model. These IT limitations keep organizations from building a scale-out IaaS cloud environment that supports the range of application workloads organizations need to grow. In order to transform, agencies need to consolidate compute, storage, networking, and management capabilities into a single solution. Turning to human computer interaction as an option provides advanced capabilities yet opens the door to a number of security concerns. New research results reveal DoD and other federal agencies struggle to make these changes while managing costs, legacy systems and more.

Citizen Experience Summit: Building a Citizen-Centric Government

March 9, 2017 A majority of citizens are dissatisfied with how well the government works, frequently citing a lack of trust between the government and public, difficulty in seeking relevant services or information from federal agencies delivered on their own terms and a slew of other complaints that could be addressed through improved customer service. How can the government influence customer-focused change within their organizations and boost citizen satisfaction in the services they provide while continuing to meet mission needs?
