Cloud Events

All > Cloud

The Potomac Officers Club continues to host events that focus on cloud computing and information technology agendas of the federal government. Civilian and defense agencies look to commercial cloud services to help them manage, process and secure large amounts of data. POC’s cloud events also seek to explore the applications of the technology to next-generation IT areas such as 5G connectivity, digital transformation and space intelligence.

Looking back: Notable POC Cloud Events

  • The POC event, themed “Are We There Yet? Your Journey to the Cloud and the Pit Stops Along the Way,” took place on Nov. 29, 2018. Cloud migration challenges and best practices were the focal points of discussion at the in-person event in Falls Church, Virginia.
  • During the “Data Management Forum” on April 10, 2019, leaders from the GovCon and government sectors discussed tagging, filtering and other topics surrounding data management.
  • The “Secure IT Modernization in Today’s Environment” virtual event in August 2020 explored how 5G and other emerging technologies could help agencies and businesses adapt to pandemic-driven changes.
