Government offices are not immune from the effects and demands of BYOD, cloud, Big Data and mobility. On April 2, HP Software will be hosting the HP Government Summit which will tackle these tough IT developments and the unique needs of government.


To fully meet these new challenges, you have to be fully armed and educated. This New Style of IT requires a new approach that better leverages what you have and justifies what you need to invest going forward.


The keynote presentation will be given by General Colin Powell. From 1987-1989, Powell served as President Ronald Reagan's national security advisor. He served from 1989-1993 as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for both President George H.W. Bush and President Bill Clinton, and was not only the youngest officer and first ROTC graduate to ever serve in the position but also was the first African-American to do so. During his time as chairman, he oversaw 28 crises including the Panama intervention of 1989 and Operation Desert Storm in the victorious 1991 Persian Gulf War.


Under President George W. Bush, Powell was appointed the 65th Secretary of State and was unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate. As secretary of state, he led the State Department in major efforts to address and solve regional and civil conflicts - in the Middle East, Sudan, Congo and Liberia, in the Balkans, Cyprus, Haiti, Northern Ireland, Afghanistan and Iraq, and elsewhere. In all areas, he used the power of diplomacy to build trust, forge alliances and then help transform these unstable regions into areas where societies and cultures have the potential to prosper. He also worked at the forefront of American efforts to advance economic and social development worldwide.


The HP Government Summit is your opportunity to learn how innovative IT solution integration can match your challenges and exploit opportunities afforded by the New Style of IT.


At the Summit you will be able to:

  1. Meet with more than 500 government customers including top C-level professionals from agencies like the FBI, DHS, GSA and more (based on 2013 attendance)
  2. See 20-plus partner-specific solutions that meet the challenges of an evolving workplace and constituency.
  3. Check out HP's HAVEn platform - Industry Leading Big Data and Analytics platform for IT Operations, Continuous Diagnostics and Mediation, and service portfolio analysis.
  4. Understand how to combat cybersecurity attacks in an ever changing threat landscape
  5. Hear best practices on Cloud and Mobile solutions from top government leaders and HP executives
  6. Take advantage of complimentary access for all government employees and system integrators

More information will follow, but for now, mark your calendar for April 2 for the HP Software Government Summit 2014.
