Intelligence Community Executive Forum and Carahsoft

Carahsoft is a fantastic company in Reston, VA run by the hardest working, most modest, ethical, business leader I have ever met.   His behind the scenes style means he would probably not want me to mention much more about him, but if I have your curiosity up about them you can read more here (read the one about their winning the Smart CEO magazine Future 50 in Jan 2009, or Fairfax County economic development authority award for 2009, or other award after award after award).

One thing I like about Carahsoft is their desire to help government customers think through hard problems and their desire to help their extended team mates and partners learn about customer hard problems so enterprise solutions can be developed.  One of the many ways Carahsoft does that is by hosting venue like the Intelligence Community Executive Forum (ICEF).  This periodic venue brings together executives and thought leaders from government and industry to listen to lessons learned, hard problems and successes in creating CONOPs to address mission needs.

I'll be helping Carahsoft with the next ICEF on 17 Feb 2009.   This one will focus on Web2.0, collaborative enterprise solutions and cloud computing capabilities like those provided by Adobe.   Panels will be held on topics like real-time collaboration, secure information sharing and Integration/web2.0.

Please check out the agenda and register if you can make it.   More info is here: http://www.intelligencecommunityexecutiveforum.com/

  1. I worked with Carahsoft a couple of years ago and the president, Craig Abod was personally involved and helped make it successful. Great outfit and Craig's a great guy!
