Resource-sharing across public-sector boundaries helps defend cyber borders

From education to smart cities, governments wield the power of data and tech
Business is fueled by data, but arguably no one collects and uses more data than governments. While governments can be slow to change, the digital revolution is coming quickly. The public sector is discovering the power of data, just as business did, and they are using that data to improve the world, from smart cities to education projects, according to John Galvin, vice president and general manager of Intel public sector at Intel Corp.

VP, Infrastructure & Operations, DigitalGlobe

From tape to the cloud, this business stores the earth’s images
With five satellites streaming 100 terabytes of satellite-captured global images every day, DigitalGlobe Inc. had reached a point this year where it had to do something with its massive tape storage archive. The solution started with small, shippable storage devices and ended with a massive semi-truck driving a secret route to safely deposit the company’s enormous visual collection. But for this satellite network company, the journey had just begun. Read the full blog post with highlights from his interview at SiliconANGLE.com.

Service-based business models drive public sector tech advancements
Historically, government entities have been perceived as slow-moving behemoths, lagging well behind the fast-paced private sector technology trends. The explosion of cloud computing has changed all of that. The technology powering government agencies is advancing just as quickly as the private sector counterparts, according to Jeff McAllister, vice president of sales, Americas, at Druva Inc.

Networking finds opportunity with new tech as government moves to cloud

CIA’s move to cloud a game changer for public sector
For many years, the pace of cloud adoption was slowed by concerns over data security. But when the Central Intelligence Agency awarded a $600 million contract to Amazon Web Services Inc. in 2013 to move some of the nation’s most sensitive information into the cloud, it was widely viewed as a seminal moment for the fledgling industry.

Jeff Ralyea
SVP of GM & Cloud, Ellucian

Unlocking educational silos yields a wealth of data to help students succeed
Colleges, universities and other centers of higher education collect a lot of information about their students. That data then disappears into legacy systems and custom applications. Breaking those silos can bring out the real power of that data and enable institutions to take intelligent action to guide students through their educational journey, according to Jeff Ralyea, senior vice president and general manager of cloud at Ellucian Inc.
