Taking the Kinks Out of the Supply Chain


THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED

This event qualifies for 1 CPEs


Supply chain management is critically important to running and maintaining an agency's IT systems, however it has not historically drawn much attention from the C-suite. Currently, many federal agencies use a manual process managed on spreadsheets which can lead to increased cost and risk.

New directives have mandated that the Department of Defense must begin monitoring the supply chain within the Department's Risk Management Framework. These cyber threats have caused many department directors to take a closer look at life-cycle management from an acquisitions perspective.  

Join this complimentary webinar to discover how automation is the key to helping federal agencies tackle the challenges of software life-cycle management to make their operations more efficient.

Specifically, we'll dive into:

  • The military's legacy systems that have been in use since the 90's and how Flexera helps with the software's end of life service
  • How to mitigate risks associated with unbudgeted expenses of software license costs through reuse and by reducing what you have
  • How the U.S. Army used software supply chain management to reduce cost and mitigate risk, agency-wide
  • The role Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act has had on federal CIO initiatives, including strategic sourcing
