In a time of rapid technological development, it is imperative to ensure our networks can withstand the increased demands we place on them. With cloud and application adoption showing no signs of slowing, the time is now to make sure your network can keep up.
So many key initiatives in government depend on information. Agencies are looking to use Big Data analytics to drive decisions. They are facing federal DATA Act deadlines for grants, and OMB mandates for email and electronic records, shared services, and cybersecurity. Too often such initiatives are stymied by an outmoded, siloed information landscape. In this webcast, Manjula Ambur, Associate CIO, Big Data Analytics & Chief Knowledge Officer and Ed McLarney, Associate CIO for Innovation, and Chief Technology Officer for IT – both with NASA Langley Research Center – will discuss a three-pronged approach that can help agencies develop an enterprise-level data and information management architecture and strategy.
Federal data centers traditionally have proven very resistant to change. But the mandate is clear: Agencies need to improve the cost-effectiveness of their data center operations, and consolidation is only part of the solution. This webcast will discuss strategies for modernizing the infrastructure and raising the bar on IT services delivery. In this webcast, Fred Whiteside, program manager for the data center consolidation initiative at the Department of Labor, will discuss how agencies can achieve the maximum efficiency and performance as part of the consolidation process.
Smartphones and tablets are already ubiquitous in government buildings—50 percent of federal employees access work email from their personal mobile devices, and another 49 percent use their personal devices for downloading work documents.

Join John Gamble, Director of Products, and Nick Fisher, Director of Product Marketing, at Lookout as they share insights on mobile threat vectors that present serious risks, and how to take actions in mitigating these risks.
