Come and learn about "The Tools to Make IT More Agile and Cost-Efficient!"
The NIEM National Training Event, the definitive conference on the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) and information sharing, is expected to draw more than 600 IT professionals from around the United States. The event will be held at the Hilton Baltimore in Baltimore, Maryland, from September 30 to October 2, 2009. Vinton G. Cerf, widely known as one of the "fathers of the Internet," will be opening the event. Vint has been known to call NIEM "the IP protocol for data."
The speakers represent a variety of domains including Justice, Public Safety, Homeland Security, Health and Human Services, Maritime, Courts, and Corrections. The agenda offers plenary and workshop sessions that will examine programs and strategies being implemented by federal, state, tribal, and local governments to address some of the most urgent information sharing issues confronting communities around the country. This training event—designed for program managers, enterprise architects, and implementers—includes sessions on how organizations have shown cost avoidance using NIEM and on tools you can use to show value and determine the ROI for your organization.
