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.

In recent years, federal agencies have deployed virtualization as a way to consolidate IT, improve efficiency, and reduce costs. Server, storage, desktop, and network virtualization have all delivered proven results in their respective areas. But with the emergence of strong solutions that converge several of these layers, agencies may not necessarily be taking advantage of the full benefits of virtualization. This webcast will be on people, process and technology that enable, transform and expand enterprises; and also how the convergence of data center infrastructure is paving the way for creating a more scalable, cost-effective enterprise.

There's no question that public sector IT is undergoing another significant paradigm shift. New technologies, such as software defined networks, cloud computing and hyperconverged systems are shaping the data center of the future by significantly reducing costs and making it possible to roll out applications more quickly and with less resources than ever before. In fact, this new era has changed the traditional data center so much that it can now be said that the new look data center is no longer a traditional cost center, but rather a central part of your agency’s IT enterprise.
