FDCCI Mid-Term Report – The Big Squeeze Webinar
More than halfway to the 2015 FDCCI deadline, agencies are facing major consolidation challenges – uncertainty about their ability to meet the deadline, finding budget for consolidation, and shutting down or consolidating applications. Critically, agencies are challenged to demonstrate monetary savings – only 32 percent of agencies report quantifiable cost savings. This inability to quantify cost savings is frustrating IT leaderships' efforts to secure mission owner buy-in.
Without mission owner support, consolidation stalls and agencies miss out on opportunities to save money, boost efficiencies, and free up dollars that can be used for innovation or to fund other programs. To reach the FDCCI goal of closing 1,200 data centers by 2015, agencies need tools to help demonstrate cost savings to mission owners.
Join us as data center consolidation leaders discuss how to overcome these consolidation challenges and meet the FDCCI deadline. Data center consolidation leaders will provide insight on doing consolidation right and share tips on how to avoid the FDCCI squeeze.
Featured speakers include:
- Lawrence Gross, Principal Deputy Chief Information Officer, Department of the Interior
- Todd Cowles, Director, Cloud Infrastructure, Iron Bow
- Rob Stein, Vice President, Federal, NetApp U.S. Public Sector
- Steve O'Keeffe, Founder, MeriTalk [moderator]
