Visionary Panel: Cloud Modernization and Migration within the Federal Government

Leveraging both cloud and hybrid environments has become more prevalent as agencies transform how they manage data and work towards their cloud smart goals. This modernization allows flexibility and supports the operational needs of Federal agencies’ missions. Migrating towards a full cloud environment is not a new topic, as decades of work has been done to ensure that Federal agencies can utilize off-site storage securely, but there can always be improvements.

This panel will discuss how they came across the best practices for migration, through challenges and successes, as well as some tips and tricks they’ve learned while working in the Federal government. Tune in to learn more about how cloud modernization can shift the way you see data.

Visionary Panel: Getting One Step Ahead: Data Breaches and the Cloud

As federal government agencies are trying to determine the extent of and recover
from recent data breaches, IT professionals need to realize that data policies,
governance, and IT must be continually monitored and updated. Tightening
security features around applications, technologies, and networking infrastructure
is even more important when coupled with the accelerated transition to remote
and hybrid work environments, brought on by the pandemic. It has been
unavoidable for agencies to reevaluate their technology needs and furthering IT
modernization through the Cloud. As the boundaries of an agency’s IT are
expanded from the cloud to the edge, there is an ever-increasing need for the
broadest set of visibility, control, and security functions at the cloud edge.

Join us for this panel, which sets out to discuss how advancements in the federal
cloud space, mobility and distributed workforces have driven the focal point for
security to shift. Topic experts will discuss lessons learned in successfully
implementing cloud methodologies, tools, and techniques in a time of continuous
change and telework. Together, panelists explore available and desired solutions
to rectify past and pre-empt potential future data breaches, as both citizens and
the government agencies serving them embrace “the new normal.”

Visionary Panel: Cloud Innovation and Skill Sets

Migration to the cloud is a fairly accepted practice as it can solve a lot of data storage and funding issues. However, the shift to cloud infrastructure can be a long process. As Federal agencies invest more and more each year into cloud strategies, training and reskilling for the cloud environment becomes integral. The use of cloud and other modernization technologies can only benefit the agency if their people know how to effectively use it!

Tune into this session to hear about the role of training and reskilling in implementing cloud environments. Expert leaders will explain their experiences with the migration processes and human capabilities.

Visionary Panel: Hybrid Cloud and Security Risks

New ways of working and sharing information have emerged within the Federal
Government. This has pushed agencies to reevaluate their technology needs and develop plans to further their IT modernization strategy. This panel will examine the current challenges, recent successes and lessons learned by Federal IT Government Leaders within the Federal Cloud space.

Hear as topic experts dive into how they reevaluated their agencies’ technology needs during this pandemic, and further strengthened their agencies’ Cloud capabilities. What strategies have been put in place in order to strengthen Cloud as the shift to a “Hybrid Cloud” Environment became the “new normal” within the Federal Government?

Visionary Panel: Over a Decade of Work: Cloud Implementation and the Future of Modernization

Federal use of cloud is a result of over a decade of legislation and funding being driven towards modernization. As more and more agencies have switched to cloud environments, further modernization of their IT systems has encouraged the Federal government to look at new technologies.

The 2022 report from the White House National Science and Technology Committee focuses on the advantages and success stories of implementing cloud environments across the Federal government and how these lessons can lead to a better understanding of AI and other tools. The investments and infrastructure, set up by the implementation of cloud, creates opportunities for the future.

Tune in to hear experts talk about where they are in the cloud journey and how it has impacted their abilities to implement other new technologies!
