Today’s public sector IT leaders now more than ever have the opportunity to drive efficiencies across their organizations by implementing integrated IT optimization strategies. With a focus on supporting effective government, Software AG Government Solutions’ “Efficient Agency IT Modernization Strategies Summit” will showcase public sector IT programs that are being implemented today and how these solutions can be applied to future public sector operations.

Dawn Leaf, Deputy Chief Information Officer, Department of Labor, and Raghav Vajjhala, Chief Technology Officer, Department of the Treasury, will both deliver keynote addresses on their perspectives of the challenges, realities and opportunities of leading IT modernization campaigns at their respective agencies.

“A new paradigm is emerging in the public sector IT arena as leaders focus on a prove it first and prove it fast mentality before committing their limited funds,” said Tod Weber, Chairman and CEO of Software AG Government Solutions. “We fully support this agile approach and are pleased to host this summit for all government IT leaders to exchange ideas about the best practices, tools and solutions they can leverage to modernize their IT environments.”

Topical panel sessions at the summit will focus on a variety of current IT trends and optimization strategies, including how public leaders can develop scalable technology platforms to facilitate the implementation of Affordable Care Act to how leaders can best manage information while complying with the Open Data Policy.

In addition to discussions on the latest public IT trends including big data management and in-memory computing, government and military leaders will hear from speakers on ways to leverage optimization for faster IT evolution and practical strategies to improve government efficiency. Software AG will also host a number of on-site demos showcasing IT optimization solutions for real time situational awareness, agile application development and more.
