Federal IT managers are under greater pressure than ever before to control costs while increasing energy efficiency and maintaining security. Under the leadership of Federal CIO Vivek Kundra, federal agencies have been tasked with complying with the recent OMB Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative, including the adoption of cloud computing and virtualized IT environments. Are agencies following through with these necessary upgrades, or are they falling behind the times? Tune into this panel to hear experts from GTSI, Oracle, and the Government Business Council (GBC), the research division of Government Executive Media Group, discuss the results of a recent in-depth study into the transformation of IT environments at federal agencies.
A recent State of the Data Center Report found that storage needs are growing fastest for e-mail, collaboration data and file archiving. With unstructured information consuming a large percentage of an organization's storage, it is important to classify data, including information from messaging, file servers and collaborative systems, onto different tiers of cost-effective storage and into an archive. Archiving is critical to storage-tiering practice allowing you to move less-frequently used information from high-cost disk and archive to lower cost storage while maintaining accessibility. Symantec's archiving solutions automate retention and storage of e-mails, files, instant messages and other unstructured content in accordance with your IT policies. Benefits include reducing your data footprint, improved performance and scalability, greener IT, and increased end-user productivity.

John Dewey said failure is instructive—so what can we learn from past complex system acquisitions? And how can we improve the process? When IT procurement requirements are poorly defined acquisitions can run into trouble—with over-charges, under-estimates and countless change orders. When speed matters, getting the up-front requirements right is crucial. To make acquisitions effective, focus on the essentials: clear, concise requirements, consistency, adequate detail, and realistic performance goals—then your chances for a win-win rise dramatically.
