When government leaders and IT managers roll the dice and bet on how Cloud Computing might affect mission outcomes at FOSE 2009, they'll have experts from Booz Allen Hamilton at hand to help them make the winning play.
Booz Allen Hamilton, a leading strategy and technology consulting leader, has brought back to FOSE its highly successful and highly-regarded simulated “war game” to help government agencies understand how the new dimensions and dynamics of Cloud Computing may help to improve mission performance, control IT cost, reduce complexity and risk, accelerate capability and capacity development, and drive innovation. Wargaming offers participants an opportunity to act within an imagined future – enabling them to realistically assess alternatives while considering a range of operating conditions and constraints – and, best of all, to learn from the experience in a risk-free environment.

Consultants from Booz Allen will help guide program managers and senior technology experts as they compete in team play to develop IT strategies and solutions that will enhance mission and support operations. The game allows players to test-drive an exciting array of new and emerging capabilities and services.

“The game is dynamic, with unexpected events thrown into the mix, forcing players to reassess, adjust, fine tune, or dramatically modify their strategies,” said Booz Allen Vice President Michael Farber. “In this setting players will experience first-hand the potential promise and pitfalls of Cloud Computing. They will take away a wealth of insight to share with their colleagues to help them determine whether there might be a place for Cloud Computing within their enterprise, application, and technology architectures,” Farber said.

Booz Allen’s Cloud Computing wargame will take place at Booz Allen’s booth #1511 on the show floor of FOSE at the Washington DC Convention center March 10th-12th.
