Vivek Kundra to Speak at NRO Showcase

On the 17 & 18 June, the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) will present the premiere Innovative Solutions Showcase. Titled “Unleashing the Crowd in the Cloud: Igniting the Innovation Insurgency“, this event will be held at the NRO in Chantilly, Virginia. The theme will focus on collaboration and information sharing with an emphasis on innovation and mission-enabling applications that address challenges and opportunities across the National Security Enterprise.

According to the event website, the current rise in the use of Web 2.0 social media has spawned innovative and unorthodox approaches to meet the demands of today’s global and highly mobile workforce. The data-driven web has morphed into a user-centric web, with increasingly empowered users who are accustomed to and demand self-service and highly customizable experiences. An expected highlight will be a demonstration of “Apps for Democracy” by Vivek Kundra, Federal CIO.

Other speakers include:
  • Mr. Rob Zitz Director of NRO’s NGA Support Team and Director of DDMS RRIO
  • Ms. Michele Weslander Quaid NRO CTO
  • Dr. Vint Cerf Google
  • Mr. David Stephenson  Author of Democratizing Data
  • Dan Risacher OSD-CIO/NII
