AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/14/14 --
SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced its upcoming participation in FedScoop's Lowering the Cost of Government with IT Summit 2014, in which leaders from the tech industry, the White House, federal agencies, and Congress will gather for collaborative and effective discussion on how to minimize government spending with the essential tech tools and processes. At the event, which will take place Thursday, August 21 at the Newseum Freedom Forum in Washington, D.C., SolarWinds will share expertise on a mobility panel as well as offer live, in-booth product demonstrations of the company's cost-effective IT management and monitoring solutions.
"As critical as technology is to national security, military defense missions, citizen services, and more, government IT Professionals must always consider the state of their budgets -- maybe more so now than ever," said Chris LaPoint, vice president, product management, SolarWinds. "The FedScoop Summit is a great platform to bring together a number of experts and perspectives to have a truly productive conversation about the government's needs and how IT can serve and evolve to fulfill those needs so security and quality doesn't have to be compromised for cost."
Mobility in Government IT
LaPoint will join fellow experts on a mobility panel to share perspectives on the challenges government faces due to the abundance of mobile devices and increasingly mobile teams. LaPoint plans to address the drivers of mobility and its resultant management challenges, and offer insight into how policymakers and senior government IT Pros can start developing their mobility strategies.
