Federally Focused Technology Event Calendar: A reference for enterprise CTOs

By

Events calendar

There are dozens of technology related events every single week. Even with recent decisions aimed at cutting back on the number of events that the government is involved with, industry, academia and even government continues to have a strong need for bringing people together to work on hard problems. Which means there are still an incredible number of events in the government space. Our friends at GovEvents do a terrific job of capturing government-focused events and can help people find the right event to engage with. We can contribute to your decision making as well, especially if you are a technologist.

We track events based on a simple criteria. If we believe enterprise CTOs with a government focus should consider attending we add it to our event tracking system and publish it on our events list. For an event to be on our list it must be one with special relevance to enterprise technologists.

You can find a list of the events at the bottom of this post. We also list coming events on the sidebar of CTOvision.com and maintain a full reference at a special events page at: http://ctovision.com/cto-events/

As you can imagine, this is heavy on events associated with topics we report on, including Big Data, Analysis, Cloud Computing, Mobility and Cyber Security.

We maintain this list for your reference and would appreciate your feedback and input.

Do you have events we need to consider adding to our reference list?  If so, visit our events page and look for a link to submit your event to us. We will review it and add it and get it out to our network.

And remember to visit CTOvision.com for the latest on events of interest to federally focused enterprise technologists.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through.

There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era.
