IT Everywhere: Technology's Role in Tomorrow's Military


The Defense Department operates a vast and sometimes-disjointed IT ecosystem that is as complicated an enterprise as any that exists today.  Throughout the department, IT teams manage operations by maintaining legacy systems alongside emerging technology.  The common thread throughout is the desire for speed, insight, and security.


The 2018 Defense Systems Summit brings together thought leaders from throughout the DoD community to address these issues and more.


Discussion topics include:


* Changing culture and practices for modernization

* Meeting increasing broadband demands

* Big Data/AI

* Mission-driven analytics

* Defense cyber tools

* Securing Internet-connected devices

* Identifying and procuring emerging technologies

* Migrating to the cloud
