Cloud Computing and the NCOIC

According to their website, The Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium (NCOIC) has scheduled a session on cloud computing at their upcoming plenary session in September. In case you haven't heard of the NCOIC, they are a industry consortium that works in tandem with customers from around the world to provide a set of tools that enable the development of network centric capabilities and products.

"The NCOIC was formed to support those who design and deliver systems for warriors, first-responders, and others as they seek to maximize information age capabilities. The NCOIC's products will continuously enhance systems and services' interoperability and operational resilience, and will reduce the cost of developing new capabilities, even as they become more prolific. For the procuring agencies, this will result in lower integration and administrative costs in the deployment of distributed systems that can interoperate easily, cost effectively and securely."

Their session, titled "Cloud Computing for Net Centric Operations" will be held on Wednesday, September 17th, from 7am - 1 pm. At the Westin Tysons Corner,7801 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church, VA 22043. According to the description, industry leaders will discuss the possible roles for Cloud Computing in future government computing architectures.

SOA-R is proud to have helped the NCOIC set up this important industry event.
