Face to Face: Modernizing for the Mission

This event qualifies for 3 CPEs

The push to modernize agencies’ outdated IT systems has been remarkably constant in recent years. Guidance on how to modernize, however, has come in a sometimes-confusing array of programs and policies. Federal IT leaders must not only knit those mandates and initiatives into a coherent effort, but also make sure the governmentwide priorities square with their agency’s unique mission needs.


That’s no small challenge, but the opportunity is immense. Done right, these efforts can transform the business processes along with the IT systems that support them -- empowering agencies to radically improve their ability to deliver on critical missions.


At this event, leaders from across the federal IT community will discuss technologies and strategies that can help agencies create innovative, adaptive services that can keep pace with changing mission requirements. Potential topics to be addressed include:

  • IT transformation strategies
  • MGT and agency working capital funds
  • Modernization and risk reduction
  • Creating a culture of innovation
  • The future of network modernization
  • The role of agile development
  • The future of shared services
  • What the PMA means for modernization
