Event #5: AFCEA Bethesda Breakfast Webinar Series: Transforming the Business Using

Date: November 17, 2020
Cost: $35-$55
Location: Webinar

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, federal agencies broadened the adoption of cloud computing, robotic process automation (RPA), and “low-code” application development techniques to rapidly deal with disruptions and improve productivity. The ramp up of increased telework capacity is due for the most part to expanded use of cloud architectures and capabilities. Federal employees from the CFO Act agencies reportedly harnessed automation tools to streamline operations and shift focus from routine tasks to higher-value work. Meanwhile, some agencies adopted low-code, fast app development methods to quickly modernize and transform their customer-facing systems.

The pandemic also exposed the limits of IT systems built for a different era and the need for ongoing IT transformation. This webinar will explore how tools and technology that helped agencies retain effective operational levels during the COVID-19 response can support agencies’ future business and mission requirements. Speakers will give updates on the various technologies, how they have been applied in agencies, and how they will continue to drive and sustain innovation across government.

Please join AFCEA Bethesda on November 17, 2020 as leading government IT thought leaders and decision-makers discuss how these technologies can help further advance IT and digital transformation progress.
