The USGIF GEOINT Certification Draft Blueprint Drop-in Session (2:00p - 4:00p, Convention Center, Rooms 24)

USGIF is developing a professional GEOINT certification for the GEOINT Community at large, to include government, academia and industry. The draft GEOINT Certification blueprint specifies the knowledge and skills required for GEOINT analysts. This 2-hour session is designed for you to “drop in” at your convenience to provide input to the draft USGIF GEOINT certification blueprint and ensure the USGIF GEOINT certification program accurately reflects the knowledge and skills required for GEOINT analysis. A structured feedback form will allow you to make judgments about the preliminary USGIF GEOINT certification blueprint and identify any knowledge or skills that may be missing. This activity should take roughly 30 minutes of your time.

Presentation — Innovating with the DIA (2:00p - 4:00p, Tampa Convention Center, Ballrooms A-C)
  • Gus Taveras, Chief Technology Officer, DIA
  • Dan Doney, Chief Innovation Officer, DIA

Join DIA’s Chief Technology Officer, DIA’s Chief Innovation Officer, and NSA’s Apps Mall (AML) Service Provider and engineering team lead for a technical deep-dive and demonstration of on-boarding capabilities to the IC cloud, leveraging IC ITE service offerings, from bundling application to deployment in Apps Mall.

DIA’s engineering team will walk the audience through the DoDIIS App Engine (DAE) framework, a core component of the DIA’s IC ITE migration plan. The platform answers several critical needs for DIA in migrating over 400+ applications on top of ICITE infrastructure while ensuring DIA remains future proof while simultaneously understanding the importance of fiscal prudence in support of mission.

NSA Apps Mall (AML) Service provider Jason Kahn will share the latest features in the Apps Mall and Ozone, engaging the community to deliver common platforms, storefronts and application standards for the delivery of mission and business applications.

The Chief Innovation will discuss “Innovation” engagement opportunities, mechanisms, and initiatives at DIA. Our ability to keep pace with change depends on strengthening ties with existing partners and developing new relationships with potential innovation sources, complemented with a focus on efforts to streamline engagement mechanisms and procedures to promote rapid and cohesive communications and information sharing on topics of interest. Our focus is not on simply keeping pace, but in leading change.
