Our AFCEA chapter is here to serve you, our members.

July 2017 AFCEA Luncheon-Scott Rich, Chief Technology Officer, NetApp

The North Carolina Chapter of AFCEA welcomed Mr. Scott Rich to our monthly luncheon to talk about the relevant trends in data management that will help the DoD leverage their data to make better decisions.  Mr. Rich provided an excellent overview of the value of data and how it is being used in the commercial and private sectors to establish a better “machine learning” capability.  In an example with the company, Tesla, he provided some examples of how these cars are collecting driver data and integrating routes, stops, and dwell times to capture consumer habits and then use targeted marketing to influence behavior and decisions.  He also discussed a topic call “Data Fabric” and harnessing the power of the hybrid cloud, building of next generation data centers, and modernizing storage through data management.  Mr. Rich also discussed about how the DoD can continue its efforts to move to the cloud at the NIPR, SBU, and SIPR levels.  Commercial cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services are already providing support in handling Level 5 government data. We sincerely appreciate Mr. Rich coming to talk to us and provide an excellent presentation.  On behalf of Mr. Paul Reimers, President of the NC AFCEA Chapter, Mr. Rich was presented with a small token of our appreciation.
