Roadmap for Rapid Modernizing of Legacy Systems and Networks

With the passage of the landmark IT Reform Legislation (FITARA), coupled with increased attacks against our legacy IT infrastructure, OMB and Congress have directed agencies to accelerate modernization of these legacy systems and networks. On September 17th, leading public/private experts and thought leaders will come together again for an interactive dialog that will help agencies establish their Roadmap for Rapid Modernization of Legacy Systems and Networks.
