ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Phase One (www.pocg.com) is partnering with Salesforce and Carahsoft to sponsor a free webinar on Platform as a Service (PaaS) on February 17, 2016. The featured speaker will be Todd Schroeder, Digital Services Center Chief for the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). USDA is leading the way by adopting PaaS and Mr. Schroeder will provide an inside look at the ground-breaking moves and stunning results the USDA is achieving. Also presenting will be the Chief Technology Officer for Phase One, Thomas Charuhas.
"The state of federal IT is untenable. Currently 80 percent of all funds go to just keeping the lights on and Agencies are so strangled by operation and management (O&M) costs that they cannot afford new solutions for their mission customers. Worse yet, all of this O&M money goes to pay for applications that are not securable," says Charuhas.
The complimentary webcast will discuss what federal executives are asking most often about PaaS, what the different flavors of PaaS really are, and a practical, government-focused analysis of the cost and security implications. This webcast will answer the pressing questions being asked by government IT executives today, such as:
- What are government IT executives looking for?
- What are IaaS and PaaS and which is best?
- Is Open Source a good alternative to PaaS?
- How is USDA leading the way in re-platforming mission applications using PaaS?
- Are government challenges and solutions proving PaaS as a shared service?
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A discussion for attendees.
Date: February 17, 2016, 2:00 PM.
