Health IT: Some Pain, Some Gain

Health information technology is the right prescription for a health care system that is struggling to manage huge troves of health-related data and provide better and more affordable services to patients. Although the path to implementing electronic health records and achieving meaningful use has not been without some rough patches, speakers at a September 17th health IT conference in Washington, D.C., agreed that short-term pain is worth the long term-gain.

Flash Storage: A Necessary Disruption

It’s been a long time coming, but there is finally a revolution in storage that is breaking through performance barriers and allowing agencies to realize greater benefit from their growing data stores. The revolution is the all-flash storage array—solid state systems that use multiple flash memory drives instead of spinning hard disk drives. Read this informative whitepaper to learn why organizations are moving toward flash storage and the benefits this technology offers.


Application Deluge and Visibility Imperative

Ensure network performance for your business-critical applications in private data centers, public clouds, and employee-owned mobile devices with complete application-level visibility across the entire environment.


5 Best Practices for Designing Data-Driven Applications

Read this whitepaper to learn how big data and mobile adoption creates new challenges for developers and what emerging best practices offer a guide for creating compelling, high-scale data-driven apps and solutions.


Keeping up with Mobile Demand

There are many areas that government agencies should consider when working to improve mobility infrastructure and strategy. In the year 2016, the use of BYOD in government is expected to climb to 74 percent as agencies work to take advantage of this phenomenon. Based on the analysis of results from a new survey conducted by FCW and Beacon Technology Partners, here are some best practices that may help agencies achieve their mobility goals.


Moving Away from Windows Server 2003: The Time is Now

If your agency still relies on Windows Server 2003, the time to think about migrating is now. Waiting is dangerous; Microsoft will stop supporting the operating system in July of 2015, and the company estimates that an average Windows Server migration takes at least 200 days to complete. Yet according to a survey by HP and Microsoft, 60 percent of impacted customers don’t have a plan for migration. Download this informative whitepaper to learn how to best plan and prepare for your migration.


Cybersecurity: Evolving Threats, Evolving Solutions

Cyber threats are no less abundant than in the past, but they’ve evolved to where the most dangerous easily circumvent traditional defenses. To cope with them — and an expected blizzard of threats against mobile and other information technology — government organizations will need to use a mix of old and new security technologies, and change how they think about cybersecurity.


A New Era of Transparency: 5 Best Practices for Sharing Government Data

Modern transparency enables data insights to action for the greater good. This paper outlines 5 ways for government agencies to utilize, understand and share open data with the public.


Cybersecurity: Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation

Cyber attacks on government networks are becoming more frequent and sophisticated, underscoring the importance of fortifying cyber defenses to protect agency data and applications. Developing a cyber posture that appropriately counters these threats has been a challenge, however, since agencies have traditionally relied on piecemeal, manual methods to secure their networks. The good news, however, is that agencies have taken steps toward embracing risk-based, automated approaches to cyber security so that they are able to react to threats in real time, according to speakers at an August 20th conference on Continuous Diagnostic and Mitigation (CDM).

IBM i2 National Security and Defense Intelligence

The defense and national security environment has changed dramatically in recent years. While the government agencies involved in defense and in national security remain the key national lines of defense, the threats that these agencies face are now more sophisticated. Read this whitepaper to learn how agencies can keep pace with ever more sophisticated attacks.
