The Silver Lining:  Cloud Opportunities for State Government

June 25, 2014 EWTG Monthly Luncheon

Key Note Speaker:  Shannon Kelley,

Department of Information Resources

The June 25, 2014 EWTG Monthly Luncheon meeting will feature, Shannon Kelley, Department of Information Resources (DIR). Shannon will provide an overview of cloud computing, including the opportunities and considerations for state agencies as they take advantage of this powerful technology.

Many of us often hear the buzz or read about storing or using information ‘in the cloud.’ But how many of us know what is involved or why we should even care? As the contract manager for the implementation of the DIR Cloud Services contracts, Shannon developed the Requests for Offers (RFOs), lead the evaluation team to evaluate vendor responses, and negotiated and established these information technology master contracts. In addition, she serves internal DIR customers, providing assistance on internal procurements and statements of work.

Shannon will demystify this popular term in person, not from the cloud, and prepare you for making wise decisions when it comes to cloud computing at your agency.

Shannon has worked for the State of Texas for more than 19 years. She has been at DIR since August 2007 and previously served as the Director of Surplus Property at the Texas Facilities Commission, as a contract manager with the Council on Competitive Government, and as a business planner for the Department of Insurance.

No stranger to EWTG, Shannon has been an EWTG member since 1999, and served in numerous committee and board positions. She served as president in 2009, was named EWTG Woman of the Year in 2010, and is the current EWTG Development Committee chair.
