The most recent installment of the Federal Cloud & Data Center Summit, held on June 13, 2018, included five MITRE-ATARC (Advanced Technology Academic Research Center) Collaboration Sessions. These collaboration sessions allowed industry, academic, government, and MITRE representatives the opportunity to collaborate and discuss challenges the government faces in cloud computing and data center modernization. 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 and data center management techniques and best practices within the government.

Participants representing government, industry, and academia addressed five challenge areas in the federal cloud and data center domains:

  • The Next-Gen Cloud: What should we do to prepare?
  • DevSecOps: How can it help handle arising cloud security challenges?
  • Adapting Data Center Policy for Speedy Cloud Migration
  • From Cloud to Edge: Handling IoT in the cloud
  • Cloud Migration Aids: Gaps and Successes.

This white paper summarizes the discussions in the collaboration sessions and presents recommendations for government, academia, and industry while identifying intersecting points among challenge areas.
