Leadership has moved from a hierarchical model to one where agencies are now dependent on people outside their organization. These leadership skills are necessary for government to effectively work across work teams, across programs, across agencies, and even across countries.
Join government peers to explore innovative strategies your agency can implement now to deliver better results, create value for the citizen, and prepare for the changing dynamics in the 2020 workforce. The focus of the event is on the successful management strategies and best practices across government agencies in workforce planning, talent management and recruiting, and performance measurement.

Interoperability is at the heart of many e-government and Gov 2.0 initiatives and is imperative for information sharing among government agencies. Agencies are looking for ways to modernize legacy information technology systems for budgetary savings and to build systems to respond quickly to citizen demands for online services.
As with their private sector counterparts, IT professionals within the government need to bridge the gap between disparate enterprise applications, modernize legacy systems, and efficiently develop new capabilities through the use of service-oriented-architecture middleware.
This educational briefing will award 3 CPE credits from The George Washington University Center for Excellence in Public Leadership. Join government peers to explore innovative strategies and technologies your agency can implement now to deliver better results and create value for the citizen through streamlining IT.

Government agencies are adopting a Cloud First approach to do more with existing resources while rapidly opening up new ways to meet citizens’ demands to engage with agencies online. Using a pay-as-you-go model, agencies can now access a broad portfolio of middleware and services, and build sophisticated apps that can transform citizen engagement.
Despite the compelling need to innovate through cloud adoption, IDC estimates that two-thirds of IT professionals consider security their #1 barrier to migrating to the cloud. Vulnerabilities such as hacking and identity theft, privacy and ownership of data, records management, and insider threats are but a few of the stumbling blocks to securely migrating government systems to the cloud.
Join government and industry experts to explore the risks associated with moving to the cloud and methods to mitigate them.

GAO projects that 75% of the Federal government’s IT budget is spent maintaining legacy IT systems. That’s $62 billion for software and hardware that is time-consuming to maintain and difficult to adapt to today’s demands for greater transparency and citizen access.
Government agencies are looking for a more flexible and agile IT framework. Application modernization, shared services, OMB’s Cloud First mandate, mobility and cyber security top the list of priorities, and with the Federal IT for FY 2015 stable at $80 billion, agencies are seeking ways to migrate their legacy systems to the cloud.
This briefing will bring government thought-leaders to the table to talk about their plans to innovate by modernizing their legacy systems.
