Federally Focused Technology Event Calendar: A reference for enterprise CTOs

By

Events calendar

There are dozens of technology related events every single week. Even with recent decisions aimed at cutting back on the number of events that the government is involved with, industry, academia and even government continues to have a strong need for bringing people together to work on hard problems. Which means there are still an incredible number of events in the government space. Our friends at GovEvents do a terrific job of capturing government-focused events and can help people find the right event to engage with. We can contribute to your decision making as well, especially if you are a technologist.

We track events based on a simple criteria. If we believe enterprise CTOs with a government focus should consider attending we add it to our event tracking system and publish it on our events list. For an event to be on our list it must be one with special relevance to enterprise technologists.

You can find a list of the events at the bottom of this post. We also list coming events on the sidebar of CTOvision.com and maintain a full reference at a special events page at: http://ctovision.com/cto-events/

As you can imagine, this is heavy on events associated with topics we report on, including Big Data, Analysis, Cloud Computing, Mobility and Cyber Security.

We maintain this list for your reference and would appreciate your feedback and input.

Do you have events we need to consider adding to our reference list?  If so, visit our events page and look for a link to submit your event to us. We will review it and add it and get it out to our network.

And remember to visit CTOvision.com for the latest on events of interest to federally focused enterprise technologists.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
