If they ever put the federal technology sector in charge of the Oscars, it’s likely to bear some resemblance to the first annual FedScoop 50 Awards, which was held with great success on November 28th at the Hay Adams Hotel in Washington, D.C.

On a glamorous night, with 150+ federal technology leaders on-hand (including attendees from the White House, Department of Defense, and numerous civilian agencies), FedScoop honored 50 of the federal IT community’s “brightest minds and innovators of 2012.”

Among them, our own Gigi Schumm received the prestigious Industry Leadership Award for her ongoing commitment to supporting the federal government through faster knowledge sharing, deeper thought leadership, and an unprecedented level of public/private cooperation.

Gigi stood in great company Wednesday night, with fellow award-winners...

Symantec: A perfect place to enjoy the Work !!

I completed my MTech-IT from IIT Kharagpur, in May 2012. I got placed on 8 December 2011, and received offer letter after a month. Symantec gave me the flexibility of choosing the Joining date. I joined the Symantec on 25-June-2012. The recruitement process was very well organised and I enjoyed both technical and HR interviews.

There are lot of opportunities to learn the technologies and boost the mind to think creatively.

How Secure is Your Cloud Infrastructure?

Alex Peters, CISSP and Manager in the Technology Sales Organisation at Symantec, argues that unless appropriate action is taken, the uncontrolled shift of corporate data into the cloud will have major repercussions for organisations everywhere.

 

One call, one credit card, one transaction. That’s all it takes now for someone in your company to engage with a cloud service provider (CSP) and launch a new cloud service. Everyone is at it—your engineering teams might be deploying Amazon Web Services right now to support a new R&D project, while the sales team are setting up a salesforce.com subscription to underpin a new sales initiative, or field service reps are using a new private cloud app for case management.

Great news, you might be thinking, and the ideal response to these recessionary times: here we have an innovative path to improving business...

Recently, public sector cloud adoption took another leap forward as the Department of Defense released its four-step strategy for the phased implementation of a DOD Enterprise Cloud Environment.

Having studied the plan, we can attest to the critical importance of the effort. The anticipated gains in cost efficiency (moving from a CapEx model to an OpEx model), operational efficiency, and resource optimization will be felt -- as DOD Chief Information Officer Teri Takai puts it -- “from the continental United States to the warfighter at the tactical edge.”

However, we should note that this is just the first step.

Data center consolidation, as positioned in the DOD plan, will be the major catalyst for driving the DOD cloud environment forward and provide the foundation for further cloud-based innovations that could have an even greater direct impact on the American warfighter.

For instance, DOD’s shared services model – made possible...

Christos Ventouris, CISA, CISM, CISSP, and Technology Manager for Symantec, talks about the real-world consequences for information security and management arising from the austerity measures in his home country of Greece.

 

Greece has voted and is now anchored into the Eurozone. Was it the right decision? There are hundreds of expert economists far better qualified than a humble Symantec Technology Manager to comment on that. But as a fellow Greek citizen, it is clear to me that the tough austerity measures my country is experiencing reveal some very important lessons for business—especially in the technology arena. And those lessons are as relevant to the rest of Europe as they are to the Greek situation.

The message coming loud and clear from businesses we talk to in Greece during these uncertain times is this: “We need to stay competitive and stay in business.” As companies from all...

My friend has a sister who is a digital native. She is online from as soon as she wakes through to the moment she sleeps, across a plethora of platforms that seem incredible to a digital immigrant like myself who needs a vitamin injected smoothie before I can think in the morning. My friend’s sister, like other digital natives, can keep up with all of her friends at all times and a strange phenomenon has occurred, she has stopped asking questions about their lives, she doesn’t need to, she believes everything worth knowing will be delivered to her via social media. Talking at work with my colleague @RPMol he sees a world where a doctor could use big data analytics to cross tabulate a patient’s test results with others globally to get instance diagnosis of even the rarest of illnesses. This amazing world sounds utopian to someone who grew up in a working class northern area with access to the best books the town library could offer...

No surprise, but still interesting to see is that the Top 10 tags on http://www.banktech.com show Mobile banking and payments on top. It is a trend that is absolutely real and with an extensive fragmentation when it comes to best practices. Standards are not yet in place and SEPA is struggling to define a framework for payments, while card and payment providers battle each other and banks are partnering with service providers to find other options. Some time ago IDC predicted that only 10% of payments will go through the banks in the future, which is indeed disputed by the banks themselves. So who will come out strongest? Will it be diversified local alternatives rather than global streamlined services?
 

Top ten search phrases on www.banktech.com:
1.Mobile Banking
2.Mobile Payments
3.Security
