August 31, 2017 During this digital viewcast, we’ll speak with state technology officials about how to build and execute a strategic IT governance framework that allows for agility, provides secure and efficient services, modernizes processes and technologies, optimizes resources and ultimately ensures mission success.
Trends in Call Automation: Improving DoD Incident Response and Public Safety with Next Generation 9-1-1
June 22, 2017 Effective incident response at Department of Defense (DoD) bases calls for seamless conversations between stakeholders on the base as well as with external civilian law enforcement and emergency services personnel. What should a modern dispatch solution look like -- one that brings together diverse channels and media, simplifies the dispatch environment while also addressing technical integration challenges to ensure next generation safety and response? This webcast explores how the DoD can improve incident response and interagency collaboration with a smart network strategy that saves lives and millions of dollars.
June 21, 2017 Change is inevitable with every new Administration, and so is the uncertainty that comes with it. In order to achieve mission success, federal agencies must be prepared to respond with strategies that will help make them more efficient. The organizations and the individuals that remain viable in an atmosphere of uncertainty are the ones that take the necessary steps to ensure that they are prepared to effectively navigate in an environment where the issues and challenges they face are not always clear-cut. What are the keys to maintaining a productive workforce in this ever-changing federal climate? Join us on June 21 for this digital event, as we explore successful approaches for ensuring that your agency remains mission-focused and goal-oriented in order to deliver positive organizational results.
June 7, 2017 To provide quality public service, governments must have information at their fingertips in order to instantly answer citizen inquiries and requests. They also must minimize manual, repetitive tasks – like finding, filing and indexing records – so they can focus more time on addressing the needs of the public. Join us on June 1 as we uncover how Laserfiche enterprise content management (ECM) solutions can help state and local governments provide information to the public faster and more cost-effectively than ever before.
May 9, 2017 How do cities make sure that land-use decisions not only keep the city progressing forward, but don’t leave existing citizens behind? How do we make communities more vibrant in the near-term, as well as sustainable over periods of immense change? With support from the Daniel Rose Center for Public Leadership, city leaders are identifying opportunities to rethink land use in ways that both support existing communities and transform the city for the better. Join Route Fifty for a digital event as we sit down with mayors from across the country who are working with the Rose Center to tackle issues of revitalization, equity, and resiliency. We will discuss the challenges they face as their cities evolve and the strategies behind inclusive and comprehensive development.
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.
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?
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.
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.
