On 16 January 2014 the federal Cloud Computing community will be gathering at the Newseum for an exchange of ideas and a continued focus on ways to leverage emerging cloud computing capabilities to the betterment of federal missions. I most strongly endorse this event for anyone seeking to contribute to the dialog on the future of cloud computing in the federal space. Look over the incredible speakers and you will see immediately why this is a must-attend event.

Considering the Cloud Broker Model
Cloud computing made-to-order and delivered to your doorstep? It’s not that far off – cloud brokers are serving up IT services, enabling a cost-effective delivery model for agencies to acquire the technology solutions they need. Cloud brokerage promises to expedite contracting, acquisitions and procurement to make cloud more practical for government agencies, and to increase governance of cloud IT. Better yet, cloud brokers can also share the collective experience of cloud implementations across multiple customers; yet, the model is still fairly new and leaves many questions unanswered. What types of agencies and IT systems would benefit most from the broker model? Would cloud brokers be regulated through a FedRAMP-like system in the future? What are the responsibilities of agency vs. broker?

Accelerating Cloud through FedRAMP
Federal agencies recognize cloud adoption as a necessity and now need to consider how to accelerate the implementation process. With most government agencies switching to the cloud, a shared atmosphere should be embraced. After all, why re-do the work of your peers? Sharing is caring – and FedRAMP is the platform for accelerated acceptance. Will outsourcing the 3PAO process expedite industry approvals? What are the best strategies for agencies sharing cloud contracts? And how can agencies boost their preferred vendors through the approval process?

Leveraging Public and Private Platforms
Public or private? That is the question. But why not make the best of both clouds and leverage public, private, community, and hybrid platforms – now there’s the rub. Combining different cloud platforms can provide your agency with the security it needs, while also achieving the power, flexibility, and cost savings the Federal government demands. So how do you determine which platform fits your agency best? How can you make your cloud investment wisely? What are the considerations for ensuring compatibility with legacy systems?

Closing Remarks and Networking Lunch
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction. In order for IoT to reach its potential, smart devices must be able to work together. Today, there are a slew of interoperability standards being promoted by big names to make this happen: HomeKit, Brillo and Alljoyn. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...

In the next five to ten years, millions, if not billions of things will become smarter. This smartness goes beyond connected things in our homes like the fridge, thermostat and fancy lighting, and into heavily regulated industries including aerospace, pharmaceutical/medical devices and energy. “Smartness” will embed itself within individual products that are part of our daily lives. We will engage with smart products - learning from them, informing them, and communicating with them. Smart produc...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
