Young AFCEA Bethesda, in coordination with our parent chapter AFCEA Bethesda, is proud to present our Third Annual Winter IT Luncheon: “Realizing Efficiency and Strengthening the Mission.”

The intimate luncheon will host no more than 70 mid-management IT professionals from across government and industry to discuss topics of interest to the federal IT community. The goals are simple: to foster better inter-agency communication among key stakeholders by sharing lessons learned, identify issues that strengthen program management and improve program performance, align the acquisition and budget process with the technology cycle, improve accountability, and increase engagement with industry.

Each roundtable topic will be led by two federal agency leads and an industry representative. The event is an interactive discussion with moderators encouraging interaction between table participants. Please note that table seating for the attendees is based on the discussion topics chosen during the registration process. Participants will not be able to base their table preference on the government representatives leading the discussion, as these assignments will remain anonymous until the event.

Discussion Topics:
  • Big Data: Standardization, Analytics, Open Data
  • Cloud/Data Center Consolidation: Virtualization, Infrastructure as a Service, Data Center Managed Services
  • Mobility: Security, Global Services, Government Applications
  • Cybersecurity: Data Exchange, Identity Management, Monitoring, Cybersecurity Policy
