  • Modernizing Through the Cloud
    Modernizing Through the Cloud Presented by: Nextgov | Underwritten by: Acquia Recorded: Jul 11 2017 63 mins
    Cloud computing is at the center of the government's IT modernization efforts. New legislation aims to fund and drive agencies toward the cloud, and the Trump administration's proposed budget would boost cloud spending by more than $1 billion. The cloud is here to stay, but are agencies making the most of it?

    Join us July 11th as we discuss:

    -Trends in cloud spending
    -Where cloud has proved invaluable aiding agencies in their modernization efforts
    -How the FedRAMP program has evolved and the kinds of cloud services federal agencies are moving toward
  • Boosting Government Efficiency
    Boosting Government Efficiency Nextgov Recorded: Jun 27 2017 140 mins
    The new administration’s directive to “do more with less” calls on federal agencies to both increase efficiencies and improve results with existing resources. To meet this challenge agencies are harnessing the power of data and analytics to implement effective, evidence-based programs. This culture of results-driven decision-making enables more productive employees, fewer wasted resources, better service for citizens, and higher performing government programs. At this event, we’ll explore how agencies are using emerging technologies, advanced analytics, and big data to nurture practical innovation and deliver results. Join us to hear best practices and case studies from the government leaders at the forefront of improving government performance.
  • Cross-Government Cyber Collaboration
    Cross-Government Cyber Collaboration Nextgov | Route Fifty Recorded: Apr 20 2017 61 mins
    Any organization, including the United States government, is only as strong as its weakest link. As the amount of data we collect, analyze, and store proliferates, the risk of cyber attacks significantly increases. In a time when state and local technology systems are interconnected and share sensitive data with each other and federal databases, cybersecurity along with entire information chain is essential.

    This viewcast will examine how governments can collaborate to strengthen their most vulnerable points. Route Fifty and Nextgov will sit down with state and federal officials to discuss the cross-government cybersecurity resources available to technology managers at all levels of government and how each individual, department, and organization can effectively strengthen their cyber defense.
  • Tech Refresh: Out with the Old
    Tech Refresh: Out with the Old Nextgov | Dell EMC & Intel Recorded: Mar 29 2017 64 mins
    The Department of Defense uses 8-inch floppy disk drives to manage nuclear forces. The Treasury Department has 56-year-old computer code to update taxpayer accounts. And the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Veterans Affairs rely on COBOL for a number of their agency functions. To address these aging systems, in October 2016 the Office of Management and Budget proposed a series of guidelines to help agencies assess their IT modernization needs.

    But as federal workers determine how to refresh their technology during 2017, they’ll need to parse through the good and the bad that comes with old legacy systems and determine what comes next. Tune in on March 29 as we talk with agency experts about what’s necessary for an IT system to succeed and how to implement these changes.
  • FITARA: What's New in Year Two?
    FITARA: What's New in Year Two? Nextgov | Underwritten by: DellEMC Recorded: Dec 15 2016 178 mins
    Enacted into law two years ago, how has FITARA transformed the federal IT landscape? Challenges remain, yet FITARA has driven agencies to change the way the buy, inventory, and operate IT, and subtly pushed CIOs to stronger tech leadership roles within their organizations.

    At this event, we'll discuss FITARA's impact thus far on government, how agencies have responded to it and Congress' role in ensuring the government improves its IT operations. In addition, we'll look forward to 2017 and how the new administration may approach IT modernization.
  • FITARA Forward: The Congressional Perspective
    FITARA Forward: The Congressional Perspective Presented by: Nextgov | Underwritten by Dell Recorded: Sep 28 2016 46 mins
    Nearly two years after passing the Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA), Congress remains heavily invested in the implementation and success of this landmark legislation. Through two rounds of scorecards, Congressional leaders have aimed to keep federal agencies, and the Chief Information Officers leading IT, accountable for carrying out FITARA.

    During this digital event, Nextgov will sit down with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to discuss the status of FITARA’s implementation across the government. We’ll look at the hallmarks of successful FITARA adoption as well as the biggest areas of improvement for agencies. In addition, we’ll discuss what’s next on the road to IT modernization, including pending legislation such as the administration’s IT Modernization Fund, and Congress’ MOVE IT bill.
