NCOIC Holding Full Day Cloud Computing Session

NCOIC Holding Full Day Cloud Computing Session

The Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium (NCOIC) will be holding a one-day cloud computing session during its plenary meetings, 21-25 September at the Fair Lakes Hyatt in Fairfax, VA. A complimentary workshop on NetCentric Patterns will also be held Wednesday morning that week.
The NCOIC is a unique collaboration of premier leaders in the aerospace, defense, information technology, large-scale integrator and services industries. The Consortium works in tandem with customers from around the world, each with a specific mission, to provide a set of tools that enable the development of network centric capabilities and products. An example of the consortium’s unique capabilities the recent agreement between NCOIC and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to advance the Enterprise Architecture of NextGen, FAA’s national airspace (NAS) transformation program. The NCOIC will analyze and evaluate NextGen’s enterprise architecture views, products, plans, net-centric patterns and operational concepts. Working collaboratively, its members will develop “voice of industry” recommendations about applying net-centric standards to the NextGen procurement, as a way to achieve interoperability in the NAS and, potentially, the skies beyond U.S. borders.
The NCOIC expects senior government leadership, both US and international, to participate in both the General Plenary and its regular team meetings. A Cybersecurity panel in Wednesday’s General Plenary meeting will include current hi-level government experts, and will provide an opportunity for valuable discussion of this hot topic. Also, this fall marks the fifth anniversary of the formal establishment of NCOIC. To take advantage of this milestone, the organization is planning a panel discussion that will include some of the Emeritus Advisory Council, Executive Council and Technical Council chairs. This promises to be an interesting discussion of the impact of NCOIC to date, and where the NCOIC can position itself in order to provide valuable contributions in the future.
Registration for the plenary is now available at .
