PaaS or Play

PaaS or Play? Cloud’s Next Move Webinar – June 5, 2014, 1:00 p.m. ET

Federal IT is fundamentally broken. GAO tells us Uncle Sam spends 70 percent, or $56 billion, of the IT budget on legacy systems.* How do we euthanize yesterday’s IT and consolidate for tomorrow when there’s no money for new development? Agencies turn toward Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Hosting new application development in the cloud gives agencies the opportunity to develop, experiment, innovate, and test for less time and money.

Attendees learned:

  • How PaaS advances big-five missions
  • Who’s using PaaS today and what they’ve learned
  • How much time and money agencies can save

Featured speakers included:

  • Keith Trippie, Former Executive Director for the Enterprise System Development Office (ESDO) within Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO), DHS, current CEO, The Trippie Group
  • Dan Juengst, OpenShift PaaS Product Marketing Director, Cloud BU, Red Hat, Inc.
  • Col Bob Quinker, US Army, National Guard
  • Steve O’Keeffe, Founder, MeriTalk [moderator]
