The National Association of Broadcasters is holding a one-day workshop on Dec. 4, 2012 for government and military professionals focused on the cloud at which ways that cloud services are evolving to meet a variety of needs while satisfying outside-the-wall concerns for mission-critical content will be discussed.
The workshop—Cloud Computing for Military & Government—is scheduled for Dec. 4 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the NAB offices 1771 N St., N.W., Washington.
The workshop continues NAB’s series of programs developed for military and government professionals to demonstrate how advances in the commercial industries can benefit the military and government sectors, the organization says. The program seeks to define issues facing agencies as they look toward implementation of cloud services.
Opportunities offered by services in the cloud may provide cost-efficient alternatives to business as usual based on traditional methods. While security and reliability are concerns for everyone, issues such as procurement policies can impact the implementation of new services in government, according to NAB. More importantly, the lack of common operating standards across government agencies may slow the deployment of new more efficient commercial technologies such as cloud computing.
Expert presentations based on case studies will show how commercial industries are dealing with similar concerns, lessons learned along the way and the budgetary impact.
