(MCLEAN, VA., May 24, 2017)— 1105 Public Sector Media Group and BMC announce the 6th Annual BMC Federal Exchange event, ‘Digital Enterprise Management: Future-Proofing the Federal Enterprise.’ The event will take place June 7th at the Marriott Wardman Park, Washington, DC.

Announced speakers include American War Hero and Purple Heart recipient Melissa Stockwell, a Paralympic medalist and inspiring keynote who will share her story from the battlefield to the Olympic podium; Margie Graves, Federal Deputy CIO, White House Office of Management and Budget; Ernest Grindle, Director, Field Services Division, U.S. Coast Guard; Stephanie Neill, Executive Director, DHS Digital Service; Ron Bechtold, Adjunct Research Staff Member, Institute for Defense Analyses; and Frank LaSota, CIO, National Government Services.

The one-day multi-track intensive education program features additional IT experts leading hands-on sessions across Digital Business Automation (BMC’s Control-M solution), Digital Service Management, Security Operations, and Performance Management and Analytics.

“Modernizing the government means more than just buying new technology—although that can be a good start,” said Anne Armstrong, Chief Content Officer, 1105 Public Sector Media Group. “Successful modernization requires a team of professionals willing to think outside the box and change the way we approach challenges, and who are prepared to reinvent time-honored business processes with digital services and agile thinking. This event fosters that reinvention.”

“As federal agencies adjust to a new administration, they must also maintain a vigilant focus on strategies and initiatives guiding their digital transformations and ensuring their security in the face of ongoing cyber threats,” said Kevin Orr, Vice President, Federal at BMC. “The BMC Federal Exchange will highlight key insights, learnings, and best practices around critical digital enterprise management initiatives, including cyber security, hybrid multi-cloud management, self-service IT, and other challenges facing agencies in the digital era.”
