    Northeastern University – The Future of Jobs in a Disruptive World

    The forces of disruptive change are gathering momentum. Technologies and tools, such as Robotics, 3-D printing, sharing economy, mobility, big data, and cloud computing, to name a few, are fundamentally restructuring the nature of work, and therefore, the future of employment. Many job classes are likely to become extinct while new occupations will emerge to fill the gap. This presentation looks at the trend lines and offers guidance on how to succeed in this turbulent future.

     

    IBM – The Role of Social Media in Providing Better Service to Citizens

    Governmental agencies at all levels are eager to improve their citizen services and deliver them more efficiently. Advances in Information Technology (IT), data management and analytics are making it possible to build platforms upon which services can be delivered effectively and efficiently. Once the initial iteration of digitization and electronic service delivery is achieved, governmental agencies can go further by offering highly personalized services to its citizens thereby significantly improving the citizen-state interactions.

     

    Ohio State Treasurer - Government Transparency in the 21st Century: Using technology to hold public officials accountable

    In December of 2014, Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel launched OhioCheckbook.com. This first-of-its-kind checkbook site features “Google style” search, interactive charts, and compare and share functionality to display over half-a-trillion dollars in state spending. OhioCheckbook.com propelled Ohio from 46th in the country in government spending transparency to 1st among the 50 states for two years running. Treasurer Mandel has since expanded his site to make it available to host checkbooks for the 3,962 Ohio local governments and school districts across the state – free of charge to local governments. Treasurer Mandel’s Senior Policy Advisor Seth Unger will demonstrate OhioCheckbook.com, and discuss ways that it’s empowering Ohio taxpayers to hold their public officials accountable.

    Trinity Technology Group– Creating Dashboard Reports for both Executives and Line Managers Using a Single Version of the Truth

    Executives and Line Managers want to improve how they manage operations, service, and delivery, but their vantage points range from strategic to tactical. How does an organization create perspective-centric reports and dashboards from the same data? Failing to do so can confuse your audience and dilute the credibility of your reports. Creating a centralized data warehouse from which to report is an important step to solve this problem. A single version of truth emerged across reports when a California department merged data into a single warehouse. The results empowered regional customer service offices to better manage staffing levels, identify areas for improvement, and grow their services in accordance with public needs.

    Session 15: Close Back-door Access to Sensitive Data  (Room 203)

    Speaker: Srikrupa Srivatsan, Sr., Product Marketing Manager, Infoblox

     

    Description: How would a data breach affect your agency? Hefty fines? Public backlash? Loss of confidence? The answer could very well be all of these and more. Protecting an Agency’s data is one of the topmost priorities of CISOs and CIOs today. While Agencies are investing in security technologies to improve their chances against hackers and cybercriminals, they are unknowingly leaving one door wide open—DNS. Most common security controls such as firewalls and proxies don’t sufficiently inspect DNS queries. Most DLP solutions protect against data leakage via email, web, FTP, and other vectors—but don’t have visibility into DNS-based data exfiltration. This session will reveal the types of data criminals are searching for, how this data can be stolen over DNS, and what Agencies and private organizations need to do to protect their data from being breached.

     

    Expected Outcome: Attendees will learn about the types of data criminals are after, various ways data can be stolen over DNS, and how to protect their Agency from costly data breaches.

    Session 24: Data Analytics Opportunities in Government  (Room 202)

    Speakers: TBD - Northeastern University Silicon Valley

     

    Description: Similar to every other sector of the economy, government data is also growing at an exponential rate. Add to it the upcoming tsunami of IoT generated data, and the data will even grow at a faster pace. It is no longer big data – it is infinite data. The need to make sense of this infinite data is no longer an option for government - it is a strategic imperative. Plus, the stakeholder expectations are growing very rapidly. Governmental agencies are now expected to find the proverbial needle in the haystack and quickly analyze large volumes of structured and unstructured data. For instance, can we quickly mine and analyze one terrorist threat or a public safety non-compliance issue posted somewhere in this infinite digital data domain, not in control of government? Harnessing and analyzing big data is a must. A recent industry report points out that there will be shortage of 1 million data scientists and analysts by 2018. This is a great growth opportunity for professionals who are nimble and willing to learn the tools and techniques of data analytics. Organizationally, there is a critical need to ramp up quickly and make sense of large amounts of data, draw insights and help make decision in the areas of public safety, education, taxation, transportation, health and human services, to name a few. This session would explore the opportunities and strategies for leveraging data analytics for personal and organizational success.

     

    Expected Outcome: Insights into the potential of Data Analytics and how these tools can create new value for government programs.

    Session 25: The Weakest Link - Removing Constraints of Agile Dev. to Harness its Full Potential  (Room 204)

    Speakers: Paul Smith, Director, Continuous Delivery, CA Technologies

     

    Description: Agile has become a hot topic as the State of Califorina tries to find new ways to accelerate and improve software delivery. As a possible replacement for the conventional software development process, the Waterfall model, Agile promises to eliminate or reduce the constraints of the Waterfall model and speed up requirement definitation, design, development, and testing of software systems. However, Agile is not without its own constraints and limitations. In this session, we will explore the various constraints of Agile and how they can bog down software development and hamper its ability to deliver full benefits. We will review DevOps approaches to augment Agile development so a better "frictionless" Agile process can be achieved. These approaches span mainframe modernization, new development and even maintenance and operations.
