Digital Modernization at Enterprise Scale: A Panel Discussion from Defense One Tech Summit

Over the past year, the Department of Defense’s shift to remote work has heightened the critical need and adoption of the Digital Modernization Strategy to enable its workforce to securely communicate and collaborate in disparate environments. In this session, hosted by Government Executive Media Group, you will hear from three former military leaders and technology advisors, John King, Rick Pina, and Tim Robinson, on how the DOD and the military services can drive secure, digital transformation and technology modernization at an enterprise scale.

About Cisco  

Cisco helps seize the opportunities of tomorrow by proving that amazing things can happen when you connect the unconnected. An integral part of our DNA is creating long-lasting customer partnerships, working together to identify our customers' needs and provide solutions that fuel their success.

We have preserved this keen focus on solving business challenges since our founding in 1984. Len Bosack and wife Sandy Lerner, both working for Stanford University, wanted to email each other from their respective offices, but technological shortcomings did not allow such communication. A technology had to be invented to deal with disparate local area protocols, and as a result of solving their challenge, the multiprotocol router was born.
