These collaboration sessions allowed industry, academic, government, and MITRE representatives the opportunity to collaborate and discuss challenges the government faces in cloud computing. The goal of these sessions is to create a forum to exchange ideas and develop recommendations to further the adoption and advancement of cloud computing techniques and best practices within the government.
Participants representing government, industry, and academia addressed five challenge areas in federal cloud computing: DevOps vs NoOps: Managing Public Clouds; Secure Cloud Access: From APIs to Mobile & IoT Devices; Workload Management for Cost Savings; Cloud Category Management; and HealthTrac Sponsored Session: Using Cloud in Healthcare.
