InfoGraphic:Cloud 101: Learning What You Need to Know About Cloud Computing – GovLoop

Today, nearly every agency, department, and government sector uses cloud computing. Some use it to build more robust IT infrastructures and replace legacy systems, while others use scalable software services to increase the agility of their platforms. Of course, others also use cloud to cut costs and even increase IT security.

Cloud is quickly becoming the IT backbone of government and, as a govie, you probably use it every single day. But do you know exactly how cloud is being used? Do you know the multitude of ways it can be deployed to serve a wide variety of purposes? Do you even really know what cloud is?

Don’t worry! We know cloud is a complex topic. That’s why GovLoop is here to help you become a cloud expert with our latest infographic.

Data Flood: Helping the Navy Address the Rising Tide of Sensor Information

Data Flood: Helping the Navy Address the Rising Tide of Sensor Information

In the U.S. Navy, there is a growing demand for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) data, which help Navy commanders obtain situational awareness and help Navy vessels perform a host of mission-critical tasks. The amount of data generated by ISR sensors has, however, become overwhelming, and Navy analysts are struggling to keep pace with this data flood. Their challenges include extremely slow download times, workstations cluttered with applications, and stovepiped databases and networks — challenges that are only going to intensify as the Navy fields new and additional sensors in the coming years. Indeed, if the Navy does not change the way it collects, processes, exploits, and disseminates information, it will reach an ISR “tipping point” — the point at which its analysts are no longer able to complete a minimum number of exploitation tasks within given time constraints — as soon as 2016.

The authors explore options for solving the Navy’s “big data” challenge, considering changes across four dimensions: people, tools and technology, data and data architectures, and demand and demand management. They recommend that the Navy pursue a cloud solution — a strategy similar to those adopted by Google, the Intelligence Community, and other large organizations grappling with big data’s challenges and opportunities.
