Leaders from NIST & GSA will Discuss Efforts to Move Apps & Services to the Cloud at Cloud/GOV Conference
NIST’s Dawn Leaf & GSA’s David McClure to Keynote February 16 Event in Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Jan. 11, 2012) – The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, today invited media to attend Cloud/GOV to hear from government technology leaders and learn what’s next in the adoption of cloud computing. Cloud/GOV, the nation’s leading annual forum on cloud computing in the public sector, will take place February 16 at the Westin Washington, D.C. City Center Hotel.

As the cloud continues to revolutionize the way government operates, Cloud/GOV is assembling some of the nation’s top tech leaders to discuss how cloud adoption is moving forward—and to identify the services and requirements that are shaping the future of cloud computing in the public sector.

Keynote speakers include:
Dawn Leaf, Senior Executive for Cloud Computing, NIST
David L. McClure, Associate Administrator, U.S. General Services Administration’s Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies

Cloud/GOV will serve as a key resource for government executives, integrators, and independent software vendors involved in shifting applications and services to the cloud in compliance with FedRAMP. As the leading association actively focused on cloud development and implementation, SIIA has worked with Deltek—the authority on government business—to bring together a diverse group of federal, state and local government IT leaders, as well as software vendors who provide cloud-based services.
