Strengthening Naval Warfighter Capabilities Through Military/Industry Partnerships
IT - Enabling the Mission Within Budget Realities

AFCEA NOVA is proud to host the information packed 13th Annual Naval IT Day, a “must attend” conference for anyone interested in information technology business with the Department of the Navy.

This outstanding event draws extraordinary attendance because it provides an ethical forum to engage directly with senior technology leaders from across the Navy and Marine Corps.

Senior Navy and Marine Corps leaders will discuss their needs, how the Defense budget impacts their plans, and how industry can help craft the solutions needed to enable the warfighter in a resource constrained environment. Navy and Marine Corps leaders have been asked to discuss current initiatives to maintain their programs in light of budget uncertainty, and how they will implement the latest guidance from the Secretary of Defense and Secretary of the Navy.

This dynamic and high-powered conference will highlight major technology initiatives underway across the Naval enterprise using the latest advances in cyber security, cloud computing, virtualization, and data center consolidations, as well as, mandatory comprehensive management of enterprise software licensing and multifunction and related devices. Leaders will discuss enterprise-wide IT requirements across the Naval Forces and war fighting domains and how industry can bring their ideas to the table. Topics include short term plans for the next 18 months and long term visions of the future of Naval IT over the next decade.

Naval IT Day affords attendees a unique opportunity to access and engage Flag/General Officers, Senior Executive Service-level leaders and major program managers in an open, ethical, and interactive dialogue about the capabilities and technical solutions Naval Forces require.

Business developers, business leaders, executive managers, and technical leaders will gain outstanding insight into the vision and future directions of the Naval Forces and provide direction for industry contributions.

Of special note is the small business program which facilitates small business in making direct connections with potential teaming partners at a small-business-to-large-business networking event during the day.
