Visionary Panel – Federal Data Center Optimization: Making the Transition to Cloud and Data Center Shared Services

Earlier this year, Federal Chief Information Officer Tony Scott released a draft memo on the Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI), which requires agencies to develop and report on data center strategies to consolidate inefficient infrastructure, optimize existing facilities, achieve cost savings, and transition to more efficient infrastructure, such as cloud services and interagency shared services. This panel will explore Data Center Optimization and discuss how Federal agencies are working to meet the DCOI mandate.

5. Cloud Computing in Healthcare

When considering a move to use cloud computing, healthcare organizations must understand the challenges with protecting health information while trusting the data in the cloud. A number of healthcare organizations have migrated some of their operations and data to the cloud. Given the benefits that cloud affords, this session will focus on tackling the following: What are the benefits and challenges in the healthcare domain when considering cloud deployment models (private, public, and hybrid)? How can the privacy and security concerns be mitigated to encourage greater use of the cloud for clinical applications? Is FedRAMP sufficient in assuring protection of patient information, and what more can be done? What are the impacts of potential performance issues, such as latency, on healthcare practitioners?
