Federal Cloud Computing Summit

Below is the abstract from the white paper provided by MITRE.

The Federal Cloud Computing Summit took place on December 17th, 2013. The Summit included MITRE-led Collaboration Sessions that allowed industry, Government, and MITRE representatives the opportunity to collaborate and discuss main challenge areas in cloud computing. The discussions were government focused at a high-level, not addressing any specific solution and only identifying features of potential solutions or frameworks.

As part of the Collaboration Sessions, MITRE invited academics to participate in a collaboration session addressing each of the challenge areas addressed by the government, as well as identifying courses of action to be taken to enable government and industry collaboration with academic institutions. The academic participants focused on the challenge areas, as well as changes in curricula, research potential, and outreach opportunities. These outcomes will help academicians produce higher quality, better prepared and industry-ready graduates for hire.

This white paper summarizes the results of the government and academic collaboration sessions, as well as identifies recommendations for government and academia while identifying orthogonalities between challenge areas. It also proposes a community built around government and industry collaboration with academia to leverage potential untapped academic resources. The proposed community will be brokered by MITRE and the Advanced Mobility Academic Research Center (AMARC) to enable communications between the different participating communities.
