FOSE 2009

FOSE showcases special sessions

FOSE released its final list of specialized educational events scheduled to take place at the annual government information technology exhibition and conference in Washington March 10-12. The following is a list of those events:

Transforming Government Technology With Cloud Computing

Attendees will learn:

  • How cloud computing provides reliable service and requires fewer internal resources.
  • How to cost-efficiently incorporate cloud computing into agencies ’ enterprise architecture strategies.
  • The relationship between cloud computing and next-generation data centers.

CloudCamp Federal

CloudCamp is an "unconference" where early adopters of cloud computing technologies will exchange ideas. With the rapid evolution of cloud computing, CloudCamp provides a place to meet to share experiences, challenges and solutions. As an unconference, CloudCamp does not have a set agenda. Attendees collectively brainstorm the topics they want to discuss, and a schedule of smaller discussions — led by attendees — is created in minutes. At these open sessions, everyone is encouraged to share their thoughts and ask questions.

Booz Allen Cloud Computing Wargame

You’ll come away with a real-world understanding of how the new dimensions and dynamics engendered by cloud computing might help to improve mission performance, control IT costs, reduce risk, accelerate capability and capacity development, and drive innovation.

Enterprise 2.0: Social Learning Strategies for Government and Military

Attendees will learn:

  • Practical lessons on building a successful community-driven approach to social learning in your organization.
  • Challenges and lessons learned in implementing Web 2.0 in the government and military with case study examples.
  • Business value for online collaboration features.

Blueprint for Green Computing

Attendees will learn:

  • How computer operations can be environmentally sensitive and fiscally responsible.
  • Government agencies’ best practices for reducing their carbon footprints, helping to comply with a mandate for federal agencies to reduce energy consumption by 30 percent by 2015.
