SIIA is announcing today that Cloud/GOV – the leading conference on cloud computing in the public sector – will take place February 12 at the Westin City Center Hotel in Washington, D.C. By gathering policymakers, government executives and private sector technology companies, Cloud/Gov will help all parties develop solutions and share information as federal agencies continue transitioning to the cloud and harness data analytics.
This year’s event will feature discussions from a diverse group of influential government IT advisors, leading software executives and policymakers, including:
- Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), Chairman, Committee on Government Oversight and Reform, U.S. House of Representatives
- David DeVries, Deputy CIO, Information Enterprise, U.S. Department of Defense
- Dawn Leaf, Deputy Chief Information Officer, United States Department of Labor
- Peter Tseronis, Chief Technology Officer, U.S. Department of Energy
The conference will also gather a panel of government CIOs to discuss their move to the cloud and provide advice for other federal executives with organizational concerns. Other presentations will address emerging FedRAMP-related issues, the convergence of the cloud and “big data” analytics as well as a comprehensive look at federal policy changes that could impact cloud computing in 2013. Additionally, vendors representing all segments of the public sector will highlight the latest innovations in cloud-based government IT.
