About this event
5th Annual F5 Government Technology Symposium Optimizing Applications Through Secure Cloud Adoption
agencies are under constant threat from both traditional and Nation State
Actors. Compounding that threat is trying to secure applications outside of the
traditional private data center perimeter. The ability to deliver applications
securely to anyone, anywhere, at any time is complex, especially while
balancing the need to meet Federal mandates like Cloud First and HSPD12.

The federal cloud movement is well beyond the much referred to "Cloud First" policy. In the case of cloud, it is no longer a journey, but arguably a destination. In this keynote we will attempt to address some of the key elements of cloud services agencies and missions should now look for and expect from our cloud providers, technology partners and a the role of the systems integrator moving forward. Areas discussed: APIs, cloud compute utilization, private to public integration, vetting the vendors, expecting more from the SI, and some trends that are emerging.
