BIM: The Present and Future of Hospitals

The need for new healthcare facilities is increasing. Yet, current federal facility design, cost, construct, and operate processes contain fundamental inefficiencies that can lead to escalations in cost and time. Projects have stalled due to multiple design revisions, cost overruns, and failed execution. That’s where Building Information Modeling (BIM) comes in. BIM is a solution for the construction and operations of facilities that serves as a process catalyst, delivering insight and improving team interoperability with tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.


Multicloud Storage: Making Cloud Work for your Agency

Government agencies want to realize the benefits of cloud, but they have deep requirements on data security, privacy, and reliability. Unfortunately, previous approaches to cloud storage came with significant risks, including poor reliability, data loss, and vendor lock-in. This is no longer the case. In this webcast, experts in cloud storage will discuss new approaches that mitigate these risks and lay the foundation for enterprise-grade cloud services.


Modernization Strategies: Getting Cloud Migration Right

Given the pressure to modernize their IT operations, agencies are beginning to migrate an increasing number of applications to the cloud. But without proper planning, moving to the cloud can prove difficult and operations can suffer. In this webcast, Michelle Sparrow-Walker, Director of the Systems and Integration Office at the Department of State, will share best practices in managing cloud migration and optimization, with a focus on developing a strong governance model.


Top 5 Risk Mitigations in a Cloud-First World

As applications and data become cloud-based, IT security professionals must prepare their future architecture and risk management programs for a cloud-first world. Join an exclusive webcast by Forcepoint™ and 451 Research on the Top 5 Risk Mitigations in a Cloud-First World.


Nine Steps to Building Your Insider Threat Program

According to the Ponemon Institute, 78% of employees pose critical threats to your security. Whether they’re disgruntled or simply make a mistake, your employee “insiders” regularly put your most confidential data at risk every day. So how do you best enable your teams to access the data they need while keeping it safe? Watch this webcast to understand what it takes to build a comprehensive, cost-effective insider threat program.


Is Your Converged Infrastructure Environment Ready for FedRAMP?

As government agencies bring converged infrastructure into their virtualized environments, they are readily recognizing the benefits, but with those benefits come new security concerns. How do agencies mitigate risks and achieve FedRAMP compliance in multi-tenant environments to successfully pave their way to the cloud? Subject matter experts from Merlin International, Netapp and Hytrust engage in a panel discussion on securing converged infrastructure while meeting federal security requirements.


Federal Data is under Attack!

U.S. Federal agency data is a #1 target for the most sophisticated and highest funded hacking initiatives on the globe. Join us for this presentation that will reference the 2017 Thales Data Threat Report and provide insight into the top considered threats to our nation’s agencies. The speaker will talk about protection from insider threat, how to increase security posture without disruption to business, and abilities to deploy data protection at the agency level with minimal effort and zero down time. The presentation will also cover how Thales data security platform can empower agencies to meet FedRAMP, NIST 800-53, and FIPS compliance standards and create a proactive approach to securing data that moves beyond the data center to the cloud.


Accelerate Application Development in the Cloud

This webinar will introduce the Java Cloud Service (JCS), Oracle's "WebLogic in the Cloud" PaaS offering, as well as provide a live online demo that shows just how quick and easy it is to begin developing and moving your existing applications to Java in the Cloud!


Track Your Data in the Cloud

As government agencies continue to move more of their apps and data to the cloud, those that are adopting Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) via a public cloud are able to better reduce costs, improve business agility, and achieve higher scalability. This type of cloud-based infrastructure also helps agencies ensure consistent visibility in data regardless of where it resides throughout the agency, whether on-premises, remote sites, public, private and hybrid clouds.


Strategies for Transformation Beyond Digital Government

Digitizing government promises to help citizens and government workers by delivering information and services faster and better. Moreover, Government as a Platform (GaaP) promises to get things done smarter and in a more consistent way. Many agencies are turning to Digital by Design to bring data and services to digital platforms without dumping their existing investments in backend platforms.


The Changing Face of Cyberthreats

Cyberattacks against US businesses and government agencies are on the rise. Malware, botnets, and other cyberattacks seem to stay ahead of security efforts. As a result, everyone responsible for information security should be concerned about the security of their critical applications and data. This is particularly important in the federal sector, as targeted attacks in this space are increasing rapidly. As the Identify Theft Resource Center reported, breaches in the government/military sector increased from 19% to 37% of total breached reported from 2015 to 2016.


Understanding and Optimizing Workloads for Cloud Deployments

Identifying workloads to move to the cloud can be tricky – not all are created equal! There may be dozens or even hundreds of applications running in your agency, and now there is temptation to move to the cloud as quickly as possible. A unified approach to optimizing workloads can indeed reduce costs, simplify business processes, and achieve operational excellence - however there are some key things to understand before taking that much talked about journey to the cloud.
