Architecting the Future Through Innovation, Mobility and Trust
This year marks a significant turning point for mobility with the proliferation of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices which are increasingly used by citizens and federal agencies. Mobile apps are making their way into homes and workplaces at an unprecedented pace. With the speed of innovation, the future of Government and the services it provides will continue to be challenged by expectations and often times, limitations in these areas: affordability, agility, acquisition evolution and human capital. While mobility is at the core of innovation, devices including applications and services must be enabled and secured for daily use and data access.
Hear from leaders in government and industry who will address how we innovate the future and deliver trust in a mobile world. Innovation in complex IT environments will spell the difference between confidence and trust, and potentially success or failure.
Topics of Discussion
Mobility plays a role in our personal lives and our government
Everything we do is moving towards mobility
How does government provide services to its citizens in this rapidly changing environment
Innovation is driving new business processes and solutions
Agencies must innovate their business processes to fully recognize the benefits and investments in information technology. How can generation work together to innovate business to focus on impact, enabling progressive mission delivery and an enhanced customer experience?
This track addresses the critical issue of how government can increase the scope, speed, and effectiveness with which it leverages technology to improve support for government missions and the public, even with declining budgets. Technical innovation must be affordable and ideally will actually cut costs. It requires agility and nimbleness, in addressing immediate local needs that are consistent with the plans, strategies and architectures of the larger enterprise.
The focus of this track will be addressing key questions raised by the increasing use of smartphones and tablets that are primarily consumer-oriented and in many cases employee-owned devices: how to execute a mobility strategy that promises increased agility but may require new acquisition patterns and workforce behaviors, how to make services for a mobile workforce and a mobile society affordable, if mobility can be truly mission critical, and where the future will take us.
A fundamental principle of cybersecurity is trust. Trust is what allows information to flow and access granted to networks. However, in an increasingly interconnected world where we access multiple networks every day, how can agencies evaluate trust? This track will present several significant topics in the area of trust and discuss the ways that agencies can build it both now and in the future.
