As the needs of Federal employees push agencies to move more and more services to the cloud, join MeriTalk and Government Acquisitions Inc. for the Federal Focus: The Cloud Generation event on July 12 at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., to discuss the best practices and results of Federal cloud migration.

Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., co-author of FITARA and IT reform advocate, will keynote the lunch session at the event, and will be joined by a Small Business Administration keynote on how the agency went from cloud launch to authority to operate within three months. The morning will be keynoted by Jay Lambke of GAI and Peter Cutts of Dell EMC.

Representatives from the department of State, Defense Information Systems Agency, and U.S. Trade and Development Agency will gather to discuss the “crossroads” of Federal cloud policy, oversight, and modernization and how that affects the business of government.

The event will also feature a discussion on the potential of DevOpps with Jennifer Hoover, DevOps Program Manager at TSA; Chad Sheridan, CIO at the USDA Risk Management Agency; Bill Babilon, Global ITOA Solutions Architect at Splunk; and Sean Jennings, co-founder and SVP of Solutions Architecture at Virtustream.
