Accenture cloud leaders will share insight and best practices throughout the event, including these sessions exclusively in the Executive Experience Lounge:
Becoming Insight-Driven with Analytics-as-a-Service
Tuesday, June 13th – 3:00 p.m.
While advanced analytics are fundamental to building an insight-driven agency, the support cost and complexity of these powerful technologies can present significant roadblocks. With the growing embrace of cloud computing, Analytics-as-a-Service is rapidly emerging as a viable strategy for many agencies. By shifting to on-demand analytics, agencies are taking advantage of fully-integrated, best-of-breed technology with consumption-based pricing to quickly design, prototype and scale mission and function-specific solutions. This iterative approach can power an enterprise shift to more agile analytics with business users, analysts and developers working collaboratively to rapidly create more powerful solutions. And by shifting from CapEx to OpEx, agencies can try before they buy while eliminating idle seats and servers.
Join Accenture’s Kathy Conrad and Anthony Pinheiro as they share how federal agencies are taking advantage of Analytics-as-a-Service—powered by Amazon Web Services and the Accenture Insights Platform – to transform data into insight and outcomes.

Secure Mission, Cloud-Powered
Wednesday, June 14th – 1:00 p.m
Despite continuous investments in cybersecurity, attacks continue to escalate. The challenge for federal agencies is that it’s a numbers game and determined adversaries only need to succeed once to put lives and reputations at risk. As Accenture’s Gus Hunt argues, new approaches are needed to change this paradigm. More specifically, federal agencies must take advantage of cloud computing’s standardization and automation to create more secure, defensible environments for mission systems and data. What’s more, the cloud can enable more proactive strategies for creating more resilient, deceptive environments to better protect government assets.
Join Gus to gain insight on the strategic but pragmatic approaches federal agencies are using to safeguard cloud environments and improve their cybersecurity posture.
