SBOM, A Big Ask With Very Little What & How.

SBOM (Software Bill of Material) is the elephant in the room.  Well, many aren’t avoiding the topic.  Its controversy and its current amorphous state make many across the industry uneasy.  There are many questions, such as what is an SBOM, what tools do you use, what is my responsibility for an SBOM?

Let’s talk about SBOMs, their many forms, and their many meanings. On our agenda,

  • We will cover SBOM basics. 
  • Give you a starting point for your SBOM capability.
  • Discuss a large industry gap with SBOMs in practice.

Spoiler, this industry gap has nothing to do with the lack of agreement on a standard SBOM format.  So what’s the gap? Join and find out.

Emerging Technology Tech Talk

Simplifying and Securing your hybrid data management strategy with Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS).

Databases are an essential part of most compute and storage platforms that manage massive amounts of critical data—from containers, virtual machines (VMs), bare-metal servers with dedicated servers to purpose-built database appliances and smartphones to server racks in mammoth data centers.  Agencies are burdened with the complexity of managing the database lifecycle, including provisioning new databases, managing existing databases, and driving life cycle day-2 operations.

Join this session to learn about Nutanix Database Service, a DBaaS platform that can manage disparate databases (Oracle, MSFT SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB)  for hybrid, multi-cloud deployments—whether on-prem, public, hosted or edge. Learn how to automate and simplify database management, bringing one-click simplicity and invisible operations to database provisioning and life cycle management (LCM) no matter where they live. Learn more about Nutanix Database Service and consider taking a free Test Drive.

The Challenge: Scaling Cloud Training Programs for Public Sector CIOs

Smart public sector organizations understand the best road to IT modernization starts with cloud adoption. They have reinvented themselves as digital enterprises built on modern applications and multiple clouds. 

But as the pace picks up, the cloud workforce skills gaps are getting bigger and bigger. So, how can organizations, especially with limited budgets, attract new talent? 

The key is to upskill and reskill existing employees first. “Build it and they will come.”

  1. You have an existing team that already knows your environment. 
  2. Better than outsourcing which can be expensive and doesn’t keep knowledge within your organization

Work from the Inside Out

  1. Create a comprehensive plan to upskill your internal team – leverage benchmarking, sand boxes, mentoring, establish a baseline of cloud literacy. (etc.) 
  2. Bring your team from literacy to fluency – drive to hands-on learning. 
  1. Build a culture of cloud – encourage blogs, talks, projects to get experience, establish internal meet-ups. Become an organization that can say “We Speak Cloud Here”
  2. Get your team involved outside of your organization into the cloud community – build a reputation as a cloud-first organization.. And they will come

Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 supercharged the need for digital-first enterprises, cloud adoption has been rising steadily.While the public cloud remains the most popular model, another approach is steadily making headway – the hybrid cloud model. For a hybrid cloud approach to be effective, enterprises must conceptualize, implement and monitor a sound hybrid cloud data management strategy. With an increase in the adoption of hybrid cloud models, enterprises must transform their data management strategy and embrace hybrid cloud data management.

Tune into this panel to hear from topic experts on the best strategies for managing Data within a Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Federal workforce. What type of solutions have been made available to help strengthen Federal Data Management within a Hybrid and Multi-Cloud? What best practices do these topic experts recommend about strengthening data sharing methodologies in various cloud environments?
