I am looking forward to attending the FOSE Conference April 3-5 in Washington DC. This is the fourth post in a blog series highlighting the 2012 conference tracks. Throughout this week I have been highlighting one of the tracks and provide some insights on what you can expect to see at FOSE 2012. The five tracks for the event are Cybersecurity, Cloud and Virtualization, Mobile, Defense Innovations and Records and Information Management. The fourth track to be highlighted is Defense Innovations.
During this session, attendees can expect to hear the latest advances in government defense innovations, and what systems are keeping America safe. FOSE provides a quick summary about what this track will hold, the track looks fascinating and will cover a wide variety of material related to innovation:
Sessions in this conference cover the latest innovative changes in defense technologies, and show you how to make the most of their potential in your agency. Cloud computing, mobile devices, and even biometric technology all offer new ways to conduct and protect DOD business. And, as these new technologies become more prevalent, you’ll need the latest information on just what types of new threats they present. And how will established, enterprisewide programs adapt? Let this track be your guide to all the answers.
The Defense Innovations track will provide an inside look at some of the emerging technologies coming out of the defense innovation community. One session I wanted to highlight was the Keynote for the Defense Innovations track:
CONFERENCE KEYNOTE: DoD Force Multipliers in the Cyber Age
Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (Information Management, Integration and Technology)
Department of Defense Deputy Chief Information Officer
Mr. Carey will touch upon the current status of key Dod transformation areas that are the subject of the FOSE Defense Innovations Conference: (1) Biometrics, (2) Enterprise Resource Programs, (3) Mobile Devices and Applications, and (4) Cyber Initiatives. The keynote address will include budgetary concerns in the future, and how these areas will help the Department provide potentially more capability, in a secure manner, within a resource-constrained evironment.
- What strategies and programs DoD leaders are focusing on.
- Potential areas for technology and program integration.
- How increased capabilities will align with decreased funding.
