9:00 AM An Environment for Rapidly Maturing Cloud Computing Capabilities for Production Deployment

Alan Hansen , Division Director, Intelligence Systems & Processing at Army Intelligence & Information Warfare Directorate, US Army

Shane Miller , Principal, Booz Allen Hamilton

Determining the process for identifying early stage cloud capabilities that have the potential for high-impact match to address Soldier capability requirements Government operated incubator-like environment to streamline rapid maturing and prototyping.  This will help to  demonstrate the value (to Government and industry) of providing Soldiers and other key stakeholders within the incubator to maximize alignment of solution to operational needs.

1:00 PM Rapidly developing Analytics for Hybrid Cloud Environment

Pamela Arya , CEO & Co-Founder, OpTensity

Every day also brings new types of web, social, demographic, behavioral, geographic and other ‘big’ data sources that offer unprecedented potential for deeper and more timely insights. Yet in most organizations,  there is a huge shortage of data scientists and developers with the skills to exploit this data. This session will demonstrate how data scientists can use the AppSymphony platform to  rapidly build custom big data analytics and workflows that execute across Hadoop and non-Hadoop data structures as well as public and  private clouds.

4:00 PM As a Service: Cloud Computing, National Security and the Next Wave of Innovation

Bob Devine , Director of Federal Sales, Terremark

Eric Simon , Lead, Smart Grid Architect, NIST

Kevin McDonald , Professor, Computer Science, Georgetown University

This panel will wrap up the days discussions with a deeper dive into the current and future challenges and opportunities as Service Oriented deployments displace Asset Oriented deployments.  Will Clouds allow the Services and Agencies to shave off development and deployment time.  How will BYOD affect DoD and Mission Critical networks?   Will 3G and 4G data streams support enough information protection to allow sensitive or at the very least routine communications to transport securely?   Finally, will Cloud pay off in terms of supporting true agility and mobility?
