Is your agency ready for the next normal?

Government offices might be reopening, but the workplace will never be the same. In pre-pandemic days, many agencies relied on systems and processes that assumed the majority of employees were on-premises. A year-plus of remote work proved that those IT services lacked the flexibility, agility and scalability that agencies need.

In this Virtual Summit, we'll share the building blocks of IT modernization, including a multi-cloud strategy, to better support the modern workforce's emerging requirements and evolving agency missions.

Join us and your public sector peers online Wednesday, July 14 from 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT to 3:40 p.m. ET/12:40 p.m. PT to hear from federal, state, local and industry leaders about how they are overcoming challenges with technology and policy transformation efforts.

Opening Government Panel Discussion: Federal, State and Local Govies Answer: How Will the Workforce Evolve?

Technology has fundamentally shifted the way employees can work and the pandemic has shifted where they can work, proving that telework or a hybrid work environment is not only possible but perhaps more efficient. So now what? In this opening keynote, we'll hear from federal, state and local representatives about what the future of the government workforce looks like.

[11:10-11:40 a.m. ET/8:10-8:40 a.m. PT]
Session 1: Enabling Rapid Innovation When Working from Anywhere

Agencies store an incredible amount of sensitive personal and private data. However, the need to protect this data is often at odds with the flexibility and ease of use of newer, more nimble technologies and the workforce utilizing them. New ways of moving to the cloud are providing agencies with the agility they need without sacrificing security. Find out how with our government and industry experts.
[11:50-12:20 p.m. ET/8:50-9:20 a.m. PT]
Session 2: Data Done Right

Right now the government is collecting an enormous amount of data on the COVID-19 pandemic. However, that's only a tiny fraction of the data that governments collect, maintain and secure on a daily basis. In order to do this successfully, agencies need to harness data storage capabilities. This is especially true since the workforce is now relying on remote employees who are logging into networks from all over. In this session, you'll learn how gov can utilize the cloud for more effective data storage.
[12:30-1 p.m. ET/9:30-10 a.m. PT]
Session 3: Back, Back, Back It Up Plan

Fires, hurricanes, pandemics, nefarious actors, there are so many potential vulnerabilities for agencies' networks. The key to upholding the government's missions is to have the proper backup plans in place. In a hybrid work environment, this is even more critical because employees may need access to data from across the state or country in response to a disaster. In this session, you'll hear from government and industry experts about how to properly prepare for disaster.

[1:10-1:40 p.m. ET/10:10-10:40 a.m. PT]
Lunch Government Keynote: Mission First

The fundamental reason to transform any government system, process or even the workforce composition is to better enable the agency to fulfill its mission. In this keynote, you'll hear from a government expert on how to put the mission front and center in any transformation effort.
[1:50-2:20 p.m. ET/10:50-11:20 a.m. PT]
Session 4: Tech as You Need It

April is the busiest month for the IRS, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services as the agencies see a spike during open enrollment. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is also seeing unheard-of levels of traffic on its websites right now in response to COVID-19. In all of these cases, agencies need to scale their technology, workforce and operations needs to meet demand. This is only possible with a flexible IT consumption plan. In this session, you'll learn how agencies are scaling to be most effective.
[2:30-3 p.m. ET/11:30-12 p.m. PT]
Session 5: How HCI Can Transform Gov

Agencies need to move much faster and with a much more integrated infrastructure. One way to achieve this is with hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). Hear from government and industry experts about how agencies are utilizing a more modern infrastructure in a telework environment.
[3:10-3:40 p.m. ET/12:10-12:40 p.m. PT]
