March 27, 2014: Today, Jason Miller, WTOP and Doug Bourgeois, VMware, talk about building a better business case to transform and manage IT in government. In the current budgeting environment, it's more important than ever to have a clear line of sight into the true costs of owning, maintaining and delivering IT services, so that data-based decisions and investments can be made. Listen in to the discussion, and see what they have to say about the intersection of technology and transformation.
Every week it seems as if federal chief technology officers and chief information officers gather to discuss the latest trends — cloud computing, virtualization, big data, and mobility to name a few. Each has transformed how agencies operate. VMware has been a major supplier of virtualization technology and now it's branching out. Federal Drive host Tom Temin spoke with Carl Eschenbach, VMware's chief operating officer, at a recent conference.
Todd Sanders, senior partner and Enterprise Data architect at ITOTS Networks, LLC, joins host John Gilroy to discuss a wide range of technology issues.

For the last year, we've been hearing more and more references to ‘software defined' stuff - datacenter, storage, networking. The big questions are, what exactly does ‘software defined' mean, and why does it matter to government organizations? In this segment of the Federal IT Challenge, WFED's Jason Miller and VMware's Doug Bourgeois will tackle these topics, and reveal why ‘software defined' models will be the underpinnings for make or break Federal IT initiatives such as Cloud Computing, Shared Services and Digital Government.

Policy and Reality: We just celebrated the 10-year anniversary of the eGovernment Act of 2002 in December, and Clinger-Cohen is 17 years old - does the content of those two historic pieces of legislation remain relevant today? Where in the Federal government can IT reform create real impact? What stands in the way of reform? How can those barriers be broken down?
The 10-year-old law created a centralized oversight and advocate in OMB for IT management and programs. It also focused on making the government more citizen-centered and having agencies collaborate on delivering services to the public.

Crowdsourcing describes the various methods and processes for getting a sizeable and distributed group of people to accomplish a task, solve a problem, or make a decision. The Cloud is a platform for delivering vast resources and services over the Internet, accessible to anyone regardless of location. The confluence of the "Crowd" and the Cloud will usher in a powerful new software development model for the public sector.

Learn insights on Federal agencies' cloud initiatives. Some agencies are sophisticated in their adoption/approach to the point of becoming cloud service providers for other Federal agencies. What does this mean for the later adopters? Can they plug and play into these organizations' clouds? What impact does this sort of model have on other initiatives such as Consolidation and Digital Government? Does this mean those brokers do all the work?
The Federal government's Cloud First Strategy identified $20 billion in potential savings from cloud computing. While this represents 25% of the total Federal IT budget, it corresponds to a measly 3% of the total Federal government's budget. Tapping into this larger cost savings opportunity won't be easy but it is a necessity. For this to happen, cloud computing needs to be better leveraged to bring not only IT efficiency but also to bring mission efficiency.
