For agencies that have embraced cloud computing, the ability to buy access to software and hardware as a service has and continues to transform the way government operates.
But the customer journey down the path to cloud can still be fraught, and there are a multitude of places where even the most experienced IT manager can make mistakes.
Knowing that, how do agencies successfully move from considering cloud to actually buying cloud services? How do agencies implement those systems and ensure they are secure?
It’s with those issues in mind that Amazon Web Services (AWS) will host their seventh annual Public Sector Summit for government, education and nonprofit organizations on June 20-21, 2016 in Washington, DC. The AWS Public Sector Summit is one of the world’s largest public sector cloud gatherings and brings together developers, IT, and line of business leaders to address current best practices and trends in cloud computing as well as solutions that can be instantly applied.
Interested in what you might learn, particularly about emerging cloud computing themes? AWS has several sessions and tracks that will address important cloud computing topics that you can learn and take actionable items from.
The Security Tech Track will provide you with the latest information about cloud security, including: security architecture and operational security, how to meet your security requirements, and deep dives in the areas of identity and access management, pervasive encryption, and network security.
IoT and Mobility:
The pace of innovation in apps for mobile and connected devices isn’t slowing down any time soon. Whether you are an Internet of Things (IoT) solution builder working on new solutions, a mobile developer topping the charts in the app store, or an organization trying to deploy mobile and connected solutions, the cloud is a critical part of your solution, enabling you to build fast and scale easily.
Governance and Compliance:
Requirements such as FISMA and FedRAMP provide a security framework and, often, a set of security controls that on-premises and cloud solutions must be compliant. This track will help you understand cloud security requirements to make it easier to start and stay in compliance.
Hybrid architectures span networking, storage, identity & access control, directory, and management capabilities. This track will cover the strategy and architecture to integrate on-premises environments with the cloud models. You will hear about recommended networking, storage, identity, and security approaches to facilitate a hybrid IT architecture.
