IT Monitoring: Meeting the Demands of the Shared Services Mandate

The Office of Management and Budget has made it clear: The future is in shared services. A forthcoming OMB policy on data center consolidation keeps the emphasis on a "cloud first" and shared services-heavy approach. Both initiatives, however, depend on agencies being able to monitor and maintain the health of the IT enterprise. There are significant challenges within this new type of shared services environment to provide visibility to all stakeholders. It’s essential to provide not only separate department-level views, but also an enterprise-level overarching view. In this webcast, Mark Glorioso, Executive Director of the NASA Shared Services Center, will talk about the challenges of managing performance in a shared services environment.

FITARA and Beyond

The Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA) has clearly had a major impact on government agency IT operations. By requiring agencies to ensure IT leaders take a more active role in the decision processes and policies related to IT resources, it is demanding more accountable, better informed and more strategic-minded IT leaders. It is essential for all agency IT leaders to operate at that level. To make better informed and more effective decisions regarding IT resources, IT leaders need real-time data and an accurate and up-to-date picture of the current state of their IT services. It can be a challenge to accurately qualify and quantify IT resources when that data is inaccurate or incomplete. Join this webcast to learn more about FITARA and how it affects IT acquisition, implementation and management in government moving forward.
