Join us for the SAP Federal Forum in Washington DC, from March 11-12, 2015, to discover how to cast off complexity and drive unprecedented innovation in government.
It has become obvious that government agencies must embrace technology and simplify at every level if they are going to compete with the innovation driving the private sector and deliver the 24×7 convenience that citizens expect and demand in their lives.
Join us for the SAP Federal Forum, a two-day event at the historic Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C., that will feature leaders from government sharing experiences and insights on what you can do today to drive out complexity in your organization and run simple to innovate.
This year’s event is being produced in association with ASUG, the Americas’ SAP Users’ Group; George Washington University CEPL, which will award up to five CPEs to participants; and FedInsider, one of the most trusted sites amplifying voices in the government community driving change.
The SAP Federal Forum will be co-located with the SAP Federal Users Spring Face-to-Face Meeting, which will take place on March 11. Please note that this first day is exclusively for members of ASUG and the SAP federal government customer user community and not open to the general public. After registering, you will be notified via e-mail once membership is confirmed and approved by ASUG to attend the first-day sessions.
Please note that this event is complimentary for all government employees.
As government agencies pursue OMB’s Cloud First policy, Federal CIOs are taking a hard look at issues like vendor lock-in, contract incongruity, data ownership, and reporting and policy compliance. Coupled with the Federal CIO’s recent Digital Services Playbook with its Default to Open mandate, agencies are looking to move to the cloud using more agile, open approaches.
This briefing will discuss the use of modern technologies such as agile application development, open source, infrastructure as a service, and other shared services as an accelerating trend in government today.
