CIOs from DHS, Social Security Administration, US Department of the Interior, US Department of Transportation to speak at IDGA’s IT Infrastructure for Defense and Government event

New York, NY, April 28, 2010- IDGA announces its premiere IT Infrastructure for Defense and Government event, taking place at the Sheraton Premiere at Tysons Corner on June 7 - 9, 2010.

The conference is unique in that it features presentations from nine Chief Information Officers at the federal level. "It is extremely rare to have this many speakers of this caliber in the same room", says Holly Schneider Brown, the program director. "Given the importance of IT overhaul for the government, the dialogue that will take place at this event will be one of the most important of the year."

The conference will address the pressing need for major IT upgrades and enhancements in various agencies and government departments such as NASA, Veterans Affairs and the Social Security Administration. Emphasis will be placed on cost reduction, consolidation of infrastructure, cloud computing and case studies from various organizations. The IT Security Focus Day on Monday, June 7 will feature interactive workshops on IT security and information assurance.

CIOs speaking at the conference include:

Richard A. Spires, Chief Information Officer, Department of Homeland Security
Frank Baitman, Chief Information Officer, Social Security Administration
Sanjeev "Sonny" Bhagowalia, Chief Information Officer, U.S. Department of the Interior
Nitin Pradhan, Chief Information Officer, U.S. Department of Transportation

As public sector IT systems age and are no longer able to meet requirements, the federal government plans to spend billions of dollars for their overhaul and modernization.
