10:30 AM Cloud & Big Data: Changing the Way Federal IT Deals with Change

Jason Bloomberg , President, Zap Think, A Dovel Technologies Company

The days of big budget, high risk, instant legacy Federal IT projects are long gone. Today's mantra is do more with less, the core mandate of the 25-Point Plan. Cloud and Big Data are supposed to represent the government turning the page on traditional big bang IT. But who's to say today's Cloud and Big Data won't simply become tomorrow's inflexible legacy?
The answer: both Cloud Computing and Big Data approaches fundamentally rethink how Federal IT deals with change. Instead of purchasing hardware and software, the Cloud provides a dynamic purchasing model that offers elasticity as its prime business benefit. Similarly, the Big Data challenge isn't how to deal with large data sets. It's how to deal with ever-increasing quantities of information. To achieve the goals of Future First and the 25-Point Plan, it is essential for Federal IT to leverage both the Cloud and Big Data to reinvent its approach to change.
