At the 7th annual Amazon Web Services Public Sector Summit in Washington, D.C., CSRA showcased some of the innovative cloud solutions we use to help our customers address their complex challenges.
CSRA was a proud Platinum sponsor of the 7th annual Amazon Web Services Public Sector Summit that took place June 20-21, 2016, in Washington, D.C. The event is one of the world’s largest public sector cloud gatherings and brings together developers, IT, and business leaders to address current best practices and trends in cloud computing as well as solutions that can be instantly applied.
Our booth showcased some of the innovative cloud solutions CSRA has provided to help our customers address their complex challenges, including how we can help predict the next water crisis using CrossGuard, our social media analytics tool for visualizing geospatial trends in real time. We also demonstrated our expertise in developing cloud-based training and providing cyber training to the Armed Forces. Throughout the two-day event the CSRA booth was manned by our team of subject matter experts who provided attendees with information on how we can migrate our government customers to the AWS GovCloud.
John Dancy, CSRA’s Chief Information Officer, spoke about the process we undertook to migrate to the AWS GovCloud during the spin out of CSC's Government Services business and merger with SRA International, and where we are now. During his presentation he emphasized the importance of planning ahead, having strong leadership, using technical discipline and leveraging the expertise of our partners. Watch the video on YouTube.
