Health Information Sharing: Evolving strategies for health information exchanges

For years now, the federal government has been working with health IT experts across the country to develop health information exchanges through which healthcare organizations can share information effectively and securely. This webcast will look at how emerging technology is making HIEs more effective and more secure than ever.


Big Data in the Cloud

Big Data potentially is one of the most important technology trends in recent years in the government IT community. Agencies can take advantage of a booming market of commercial tools and techniques for extracting insights from their data to inform decision-making and improve operational efficiencies. This webcast will look at approaches agencies might take to modernize their IT systems and position themselves to leverage the potential of Big Data, cloud, mobility and other key technologies.


A Better Approach to the Cloud: The Case for Hybrid

Too often agencies have rushed into cloud computing by adopting a public commercial service that doesn’t maximize existing investments or offer the customization around security, compliance, and performance that they require. Consequently, they end up with siloed infrastructures that hinder information sharing and reduce cost-effectiveness. But there is an alternative: the hybrid cloud. Hybrid strategies enable agencies to seamlessly manage applications and data across multiple cloud and on-premise platforms, delivering the freedom to tailor computing environments to unique mission needs. Attend this webcast to learn how to leverage the power of hybrid to make the most of your existing infrastructure while pursuing FEDRamp-compliant cloud solutions.


Private and Hybrid Clouds: A More Cost-Effective, Manageable Approach

As federal agencies continue to increase their investments in private and hybrid clouds, the cost and complexity of their environments are increasing as well. But there is a better way. A new generation of cloud software makes it possible to provide common cloud services for compute, network and storage while supporting multiple hypervisors and multi-vendor platforms. This approach enables self-service and bill-back enabling services based IT by allowing line IT managers to deploy systems in minutes with the push of a button. Additionally, it provides ongoing service lifecycle management and the flexible platform to automate assets that most organizations are already using.


The Hybrid Cloud: Insights from the Intelligence Community

From the beginning of the cloud computing trend, agencies have wrestled with which approach to take: A public cloud, in which their applications and data are managed by a commercial cloud provider, or a private cloud, in which they reside on an internal system. As it turns out, it often is not a clear-cut answer. Any given agency is likely to have some applications and data that might be appropriate for a commercial cloud service, while others clearly belong on a private cloud. That is where the hybrid cloud comes in. The hybrid cloud provides agencies with the flexibility and manageability they need to manage a mixed cloud environment. In this webcast, Todd Myers, Lead Global Compute Architect at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, will share insights and lessons learned in hybrid cloud from this ground-breaking project.


Collaboration in the Cloud

Government employees increasingly find that they cannot work in a vacuum. Instead, they must work with other employees in their agency – or employees in other agencies – to support essential government services. Without a doubt, when it comes to collaboration, the cloud is the underlying platform of choice.


Transforming the Data Center for Immediate Cost Savings

Learn how to leverage the full capabilities of virtualization by adopting a converged infrastructure that combines the compute (server) tier and the storage tier into a single system.


Empowering the Mobile Workforce: Best Practices and New Solutions

In this webcast, an industry expert will share how these tools can help your agency optimize your business processes and create a mobile strategy that supports individual function areas while furthering the agency’s long-term vision. In addition, the webcast will explore best practices and lessons-learned implementing specific solutions agency-wide.


Continuous Monitoring to Detect Advanced Persistent Threats

For federal agencies, cyber attacks are a fact of life. Since 2006, the number of cyber incidents reported by federal agencies has increased by 782 percent, according to the Government Accountability Office. And with the emergence of a new generation of advanced malware, zero-day exploits, and targeted advanced persistent threats (APTs), these attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and successful. Traditional security defenses are no longer effective. Organizations need an advanced, game-changing technology to enable timely detection and protection. In this webinar you will learn why Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are successful, the anatomy of actual attack scenarios and their multi-stage approach and how a new model for advanced threat detection can protect your agency.


Getting Beyond the Basics of Mobile Security: A Roundtable Discussion

This webcast will provide a breakdown of the unique challenges of mobile security – and offer insight into how to meet them. This roundtable discussion will feature two experts: William Corrington former chief technology officer with the Department and Interior; and Mike Zirkle, Associate Director of Public Sector Solutions & Marketing, Verizon Enterprise Solutions.


Insights Revealed: Benefits and Best Practices for Effective Collaboration

Numerous government agencies are getting serious about collaboration because each sees opportunities to improve enterprise-wide information sharing and productivity, support real-time communications during crises, or reduce the money spent on large in-person meetings or conferences. Join this exclusive Webcast for an in-depth look at which online tools and techniques are most effective in enhancing greater collaboration.


Big Data: How to Take it to the Next Level

In this webcast, Dr. Mark Luker, Associate Director, NITRD/NCO will present an overview of how the NITRD is working to address emerging challenges of R&D for Big Data. Further, Dr. Luker will reveal how several agencies are currently leveraging Big Data to improve their citizen service and advance their overarching missions.
