FDCCI Big Squeeze

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. While agencies are challenged to demonstrate monetary savings, only 32 percent of agencies report quantifiable cost savings, frustrating IT leadership’s 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 spent on other programs.

Download this webinar to learn how agencies are managing data center consolidation initiatives and how to avoid the FDCCI squeeze.

Attendees learned:

  • How agencies can overcome consolidation challenges to meet the FDCCI deadline
  • Whether agencies are on track to close 1,200 data centers by 2015
  • Best practices to demonstrate monetary savings and secure mission owner buy-in
  • If consolidation goals, such as saving money and boosting efficiencies, will pay off

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]
