GovCloud: Cloud Computing for the Business of Government “Update and Outlook”

The United States Government spending over $76 billion annually on more than 10,000 different systems

Press Briefing II at the National Press Club, Washington, D.C.
18 September 2012, 8:30 -11:00 AM
GovCloud: Cloud Computing for the Business of Government “Update and Outlook”
Open to Government, Contractors & the Press

The United States Government is the world’s largest consumer of information technology, spending over $76 billion annually on more than 10,000 different systems. Fragmentation of systems, poor project execution, and the drag of legacy technology in the Federal Government have presented barriers to achieving the productivity and performance gains found when technology is deployed effectively in the private sectors.

All that is changing as the Administration obliges federal departments to look to Cloud computing to cut costs and solve many of the problems that have plagued IT deployment for decades. The problem, however, is how do federal IT managers and those controlling the budgets go about deciding what is best for them.
Leading experts from Government and Industry will update the press and attendees on …
  • Status of government Cloud initiatives
  • Future Plans and Outlook
  • Challenges and Opportunities
