The summer may seem a distant memory but those who attended Federal Forum 2013 clearly remember that the August event provided an opportunity to discuss key challenges facing government IT leaders as they seek to optimize their networks in the age of Big Data, budget reductions, and infrastructure transformation.
For those of us who were able to attend the event, the wealth of information was so great that we all missed seeing at least one panel on our ‘must see’ list. The good news is, that you can access the insights shared by leading government IT officials and industry visionaries at the event on demand with videos and slides from the sessions available online.
And, for those of you who were unable to attend the event we’ve got a few suggestions for where to start your virtual Federal Forum 2013 experience.
- Why not start with Terry Halverson’s exceptional keynote address on the past, present, and future of government networks? As CIO of the Department of the Navy and with more than 20 years experience managing networks he’s a compelling speaker with practical advice.
- If you need to future-proof your data center to manage ever-increasing data loads while dealing with ever-decreasing funding, then take a few moments to view the panel discussion between high-level IT officials from the Departments of Labor, Homeland security, and the Interior.
- Questions about the benefits of virtualization? Listen in as Steve Charles from immixGroup moderates a conversation between Ron Bewtra, CTO of NOAA, Michael Valivullah of NASS, and Jon Hudson, Principal Engineer at Brocade.
