Improving Operational Efficiencies in Government

October 28, 2014 The federal government occupies approximately 500,000 buildings worldwide, spending billions of dollars annually on operational costs alone. Yet some agencies are using technology in unique ways to curb energy consumption and realize efficiencies integral to the overall success of their missions. This panel would explore the government’s innovative efforts to maximize efficiencies through data analysis and data-driven technology.

Defense IT Transformation - Where Mobility Fits In

October 23, 2014 The Department of Defense (DoD) concept for a Joint Information Environment (JIE) is designed to provide effective warfighter and operations support through network consolidation and standardization, and by addressing the information needs of highly mobile and dispersed forces. The end game is to provide military personnel with improved capabilities for data access, sharing, and security, while enabling significantly simpler network management and situational awareness of connected users and devices. DoD leaders have noted that mobility is a critical, integrated component for their vision of a secure, aware, agile, and connected defense workforce that will be able to reliably access information and applications as they are needed. Anticipated benefits for soldiers, sailors, airmen and their commanders is more responsive systems, more user-familiar interfaces, and operational efficiencies. As this concept evolves, how will the JIE improve, or complicate, the programs and collaborative technologies in use today? How will DoD mobile operations and communications be impacted? To address these questions, the Government Business Council (GBC) will release its findings from a new study conducted to understand how members of the defense program management, technology, and security communities view mobility and its linkage to the JIE as we begin Government Fiscal Year 2015. This is your opportunity to hear the results of the GBC research, ask questions of those leading several defense mobility programs now, and gain insight into how JIE and mobility can be synchronized to support U.S. military operations around the globe.
