Beyond Infrastructure: Running Missions in the Cloud


Cloud computing has enormous potential as an engine of innovation and productivity in the Federal government. "Cloud" can deliver speed of execution, empowerment, and compelling economics that can transform a wide range of missions. IBM brings its secure cloud computing service delivery options with SoftLayer and FedRAMP authorized SmartCloud for Government Federal Data Centers.

As the Federal government agencies seek to migrate and deploy mission applications on the cloud, this insightful event will focus on the cloud design and architecture criteria to be considered while addressing and managing associated risks and the importance of open standards based cloud computing.

Please join us to hear from IBM experts and engage in the dialog, as we explore the key issues shaping cloud adoption for mission applications in the federal government. Kicked off by Anne Altman, IBM General Manager US Federal and Government and Dr. Jane Snowdon, IBM US Federal Chief Innovation Officer, the topics of "Moving to Cloud Computing" and "Running Trusted and Secure Missions in the Cloud" will be coupled with demonstrations of IBM's comprehensive cloud portfolio of security, SaaS and mobility solutions.

In addition, we have allocated time on December 12th for individual meetings with our IBM Federal Chief Innovation Officer, IBM Federal Chief Technology Officers, IBM Distinguished Engineers and Cloud Architects. Please contact your IBM client representative to arrange your meeting.

We look forward to exploring the application of IBM cloud to your agency and mission.
