Plano, Texas (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
Government cloud computing will be the focus when Layered Tech and other industry leaders join IT decision-makers from federal, state, and local government for the 7th annual Cloud/GOV conference on February 12 in Washington, D.C. The conference will address innovation and change in public sector use and procurement of information technology.
Recent federal initiatives such as the Cloud First policy show recognition on the part of the federal government that “the cloud” can help agencies spend taxpayer dollars more efficiently and develop more agile, responsive constituent services. Layered Tech, with its deep experience providing cloud infrastructure and platform services that comply with stringent federal security requirements, is uniquely well positioned to help public sector IT decision-makers understand the benefits, challenges, and best practices for migrating to the cloud.
At Cloud/GOV 2013, Layered Tech President Brad Hokamp will serve on a panel addressing “When is a Cloud Business Solution Right for Your Agency?”. The panel will be moderated by Susie Adams, Microsoft’s CTO for Federal Sales and will include CIOs from federal agencies.
“Cloud computing, when used strategically and implemented with the necessary security and compliance toolsets, can foster more efficient and nimble government services,” said Mr. Hokamp. “We’re happy to have the opportunity to share what we’ve learned from years of experience providing secure, compliant cloud platforms for federal agencies and their application partners.”
Layered Tech provides FISMA-compliant cloud infrastructure and platform services to more than half of U.S. federal agencies, including some of the most security-sensitive agencies such as the Departments of Justice, Energy, and Treasury. In partnership with Microsoft, Layered Tech recently launched the Microsoft Dynamics Government Cloud, a Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution tailored specifically to the high security requirements of federal government enterprise applications. To help advance the development and adoption of government-oriented cloud applications, Layered Tech runs a Public Sector Incubation Center for software vendors and system integrators leveraging the Microsoft Dynamics platform.
The day-long Cloud/GOV 2013 conference is sponsored by Deltek and the Software & Information Industry Association’s Public Sector Innovation Group (PSIG). The conference will be held at The Westin Washington and features keynote presentations and panel discussions throughout the day.
