DoD's Mark Krzysko to Speak at 1st Annual GovIT Expo

ADUSD Krzysko will present a Case Study - "Authoritative Decision-Making Information via SOA & Governance"

February 29, 2008 marked the start of change in the Department of Defense's management of its Major Defense Acquisition Program (MDAP) portfolio. On that day, authoritative Earned Value Management and Unit Cost information was available, on demand, to support DoD Secretariat decision making on 12 MDAPs totaling $103B.

Today, the capability provides broader cost, schedule, and performance information for 37 MDAPs totaling $1.2T.

"This effort combines Departmental and data governance with SOA to improve the timeliness and authoritativeness of critical program oversight data, which permits continued operation of stakeholders' own business systems, while standardizing the available data and external interfaces," says Mark Krzysko, who serves as the Assistant Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (ADUSD) for Business Transformation and will be presenting a case Study on the effort at SYS-CON's 1st Annual Government IT Conference & Expo (GovITExpo), which will take place on October 6, 2009, at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.

His session is titled "Authoritative Decision-Making Information via SOA and Governance."

In his senior DoD leadership position, Krzysko directs technical and transformational efforts to make timely, authoritative major weapons system acquisition information available to support oversight of Department's major defense acquisition programs.

1st Annual Government IT Conference & Expo
Government IT Conference & Expo (GovITExpo.com), which is being held October 6, 2009 in Washington, DC, builds on the success of SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Expo, the fastest-growing conference anywhere in the world devoted to the delivery of massively scalable IT as a service using Internet technologies. Agency CIOs and CTOs need the flexibility to choose the best tools to accomplish their mission regardless of platform. Cloud computing, virtualization, SOA, security and compliance are among the major themes of the technical program.

Top Keynote from the Deputy CIO of the CIA
The Opening Keynote at the 1st GovIT Expo is being given by Jill Tummler Singer, Deputy Chief Information Officer at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). It is titled "Enterprise Cloud Computing - The Infrastructure’s Ultimate Revenge."

With GovITExpo we widen and broaden our reach to embrace those who are bringing technology into the Federal domain. This high-energy event is a must-attend for senior technologists involved in Government IT at every level including CIOs, CTOs, directors of infrastructure, VPs of technology, IT directors and managers, network and storage managers, network engineers, enterprise architects, and communications and networking specialists.

There are breakout sessions on the security issues that are unique to the Cloud, such as the crucial distinction between Private and Public clouds. Expert speakers from government and the software industry alike will be looking at issues such as the requirements for how companies can handle government information and how information can be most successfully shared by multiple clouds.

Doing more with less is the new reality for most IT departments, and the Government is no exception. So the cost-effectiveness of technologies such as Virtualization are also foremost on the agenda, which you can view by clicking on the middle link below:
