Defense Systems Summit

This event qualifies for 4 CPEs


IT is essential to readiness. Cloud, network modernization, analytics, mobility, and related technologies are reshaping how the military services and supporting agencies manage core operations and deliver mission-critical services.


These technologies also provide an opportunity to reengineer those operations and services to create a much more agile and responsive IT environment—one that ensures that DOD and military decision-makers have secure and immediate access to the information and services that they require.


Register for this event and hear IT and military leaders from across the Defense Department to discuss how to leverage IT to improve defense readiness.

Topics to be discussed incude:

  • Emerging defense IT priorities
  • New cyber tools and tactics
  • Data center virtualization and optimization
  • Software-defined operations
  • Foundations for JIE
  • The mobile warrior
  • Cloud-based operations
  • IT transformation
