1:45 PM - 3:45 PM

Collaboration Session 1: Cloud Smart and Impact on Government Cloud Adoption

OMB’s new Cloud Smart policy is a shift from the Cloud First strategy. This session will focus on the ways in which the Cloud Smart policy will impact government cloud adoption to include newly introduced challenges or improvements.

1:45 PM - 3:45 PM

Collaboration Session 2: Challenges to Cloud Enabling Security

As industry migrates work load to the Cloud, cyber security organizations struggle to maintain their prized Common Operating Picture (COP). But cloud-based security tools can be different from traditional tools in ways that may both enable or disable Standard Operating Procedure (SOP). Workload engineers are not well versed in describing perceived threats to their environments and Security Operations Center (SOC) personnel are not well versed in cloud security tools. Consequently, the varied lexicon driven by the multitude of cloud offerings in the marketplace can cultivate coverage gaps in defensive posture after migration. This break out session addresses the challenges faced by government organizations and their industry partners in maintaining or improving Defensive Cyber Operations (DCO) capabilities as the shift to cloud computing is made. Government leaders and industry professionals will share their experiences, challenges, and wins in this area.

1:45 PM - 3:45 PM

Collaboration Session 3: Cloud-enabled Rapid Development and DevOps

Modern software delivery practices (e.g., DevOps) rely heavily on cloud services to enable rapid testing, patching, feature enhancement, and other aspects of software development. As such, the challenge facing the government is not only how to adopt cloud but also how to use it to enable modern software practices. This session will focus on recommendations, common pitfalls, and other challenges with using cloud services in modern software delivery.

1:45 PM - 3:45 PM

Collaboration Session 4: Serverless Computing and the Impact on Cloud

This session focuses on the actions that the government can take to prepare to support serverless computing. 
}
1:45 PM - 3:45 PM

Collaboration Session 5: Healthcare IT (IPO)

This session will focus on how cloud can improve health outcomes. With the use of cloud platforms and associate applications, our workforce can conduct predictive analytics for early detection and mediation of emerging hazards, public health threats, and to promote community well-being and resilience.
