The Advanced Technology Academic Research Center (ATARC) and The Government Information Technology Executive Council (GITEC) announced their merger on May 31, 2018.
The merger brought together two non-profits with similar goals that provide professional development and collaborative forums for Federal government, academia and industry to identify, discuss and resolve emerging technology challenges.
GITEC Board Members who voted to merge with ATARC were: Michelle Barr, HUD; Walter Bigelow, ATF; Adriane Burton, HSRC; Rolando Estrada, DHA; Denise Hill, DOE; Luwanda Jones, VA; Robert Lahmann, SEC; Carlo Lucchesi, FBI; Darryl Peek, DHS; Chad Sheridan, USDA RMA; John Sprague, NASA; and Natasha Varlack, USDA AMS.
GITEC was established in response to a June 28, 1966 White House memorandum to provide a forum through which Senior Level Government and Industry Executives could share and collaborate in an open forum on Information Technology (IT) ideas, challenges and successes.
For over 50 years, GITEC organized and structured an impressive array of initiatives to focus on vital and timely issues affecting the direction and future of IT, including executive seminars, workgroups, summits, committees, and for 25 years, GITEC hosted the annual Information Processing Interagency Conference.
Beginning with its 25th anniversary in 2009, GITEC changed its focus to reflect a new era for IT professionals and a new Administration. In March of 2010, GITEC hosted its first GITEC Summit.
Similar to GITEC, ATARC expanded from its original focus.
Created in September of 2012, the Advanced Mobility Academic Research Center (AMARC) was formed in response to the Digital Government Strategy, which was released earlier that year. AMARC founder Tom Suder played a prominent role in the formation of the DGS and created ATARC to continue the dialogue between government, industry and academia.
AMARC hosted a pair of Federal Mobile Computing Summits before being asked by the General Services Administration in 2013 to hold additional events on the topics of Cloud Computing and IT Networks.
As AMARC’s collaborative focus changed from Mobile to Federal IT, so too did its name. In early 2014, Suder renamed AMARC the Advanced Technology Academic Research Center and within the next year, ATARC expanded its portfolio to include Cybersecurity, DevOps, Data & Analytics and Health IT events.
In 2017, ATARC published a 235-page report to the American Technology Council and Federal CIO Council entitled Navigating the Future of Mobile Services. Produced in the spirit of the Digital Government Strategy and in conjunction with the cross-agency Mobile Services Category Team, the report was a collaborative effort between more than 160 people representing 75 agencies, bureaus and companies.
In 2018, ATARC published its 25th White Paper in conjunction with MITRE as outputs from events in the ATARC Federal IT Summit Series.
