Cloud Computing & Assurance for Critical DoD Initiatives
Leveraging Technology to Extend Capabilities and Foster a Joint Information Environment

23 April, 2013 - 25 April, 2013, Washington DC/VA, United States

Event Focus

This is an unclassified event. In July 2012, the DoD released an official Cloud Computing Strategy, which includes four main areas of focus: 

  • Fostering adoption of department-wide cloud services through an outreach campaign to increase the number of cloud consumers and providers.
  • Optimizing data center consolidation by eliminating duplicative software and providing information technology services, hosted in the data centers, in a standard way.
  • Incorporating cloud hardware and software into select DoD data centers.
  • Delivering cloud services via DoD components, vendors or other agencies.

Efforts to engage and manage cloud computing within the DoD are occurring in a decentralized fashion and without specific regulations to perpetuate greater cost-efficiency. There is more urgency than ever to reduce defense spending, and cloud computing has been agreed upon almost unanimously as an ideal way to reduce costs and maintain relevance.

Thus, it is important to have the different agencies dialoguing with one another to cohesively support and advance these endeavors. This premier marcus evans meeting will strive to address cloud computing in light of confidentiality, integrity and availability as necessary to achieve DoD mission success.
