“The goal for ELC is simple, yet bold: provide guidance to help federal agencies better manage their investment in IT and drive innovation in the process,” said Margie Graves, 2013 ELC Government Chair. “This year’s program will provide a forum for government leaders and industry executives to share best practices, tips and insights for leveraging IT to fundamentally transform the way government organizations deliver mission value and citizen services.”
2013 ELC will feature leading experts from government, academia and the commercial world, who will share their unique perspective on the President’s Fiscal Year 2014 (FY14) Budget and how the private and public sectors must converge to increase the return on investment in federal IT. 2013 ELC plenary session speakers include: Steven VanRoekel, Acting Deputy Director for Management, Office of Management and Budget, and Federal Chief Information Officer; Todd Park, U.S. Chief Technology Officer; and Dan Tangherlini, Administrator, U.S. General Services Administration.
The program’s mission-focused tracks and sessions will provide attendees with practical solutions for driving results with big data, while adhering to the “Innovate, Deliver, Protect and Analyze” paradigm that is at the heart of the government’s strategic vision. Tracks will focus on addressing government’s most pressing challenges, as they relate to the following topics:
- Health and Sciences – Attendees will learn how to provide innovative responses to mission challenges using predictive analytics, open data initiatives, and efficiency gained from modeling and simulation, and mobility.
- Cyber Security – This track will address the high demand for increased cyber security across all government missions and the need for public-private partnerships to protect the nation’s critical information assets.
- Financial, Regulatory & Economic – Sessions will focus on the management of data critical to the federal financial and regulatory missions and best practices for sharing services across government agencies.
- Public Safety/Law Enforcement – This track will focus on the federal public safety and law enforcement missions and explore information sharing and the critical needs of first responders through open data initiatives.
“We live in an exciting era of technological change where massive increases in available data can both challenge and transform Government mission performance,” said Paul Strasser, 2013 ELC Industry Chair. “2013 ELC will explore opportunities for collaborative partnerships within government, and across industry, to help federal agencies address these challenges and realize the vision of building a customer-centric government.”
2013 ELC will bring together more than 800 senior-level government officials and industry executives to forge partnerships and engage in results-focused dialogue on how to drive mission success. Attendees will receive continuing education units (CEUs), Professional Development Units and Continuous Learning Points for their participation in this training event.
