1704 Titans Larry Prior 435a (2)On April 7, over 400 members of the region’s technology community came together at The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner for an NVTC Titans breakfast featuring Larry Prior, president and CEO of CSRA, a leading provider of next-generation IT solutions and professional services for U.S. government agencies and programs.

Prior highlighted the “fundamental refresh” occurring in tech today, being driven by demand for the cloud and processing capabilities at the edge. This next-gen IT revolution isn’t just happening in the commercial sector; government clients are also expecting automated workflow and agile network systems that function like the apps on their personal devices.

Prior also discussed  last year’s merger between CSC and SRA to form CSRA. He shared how the merger has allowed CSRA to scale its business to meet the government’s IT needs. Through increased financial investments in R&D, leveraging a newly-expanded talent pool and bolstering partnerships, CSRA has been able to scale its business. Prior also noted how consolidations and mergers are becoming a more common trend in the tech industry.

Scaling is happening at a regional level in Greater Washington, too, according to Prior. The region’s strengths in partnership-building, collaboration, commitment to mission and passion for customers gives organizations here a strong foundation and competitive advantage, particularly with government customers. Prior noted that Greater Washington is a “model for tomorrow” in improving technology and impacting change on a national level.

Big Data: An Enterprise Asset

March 24th, 2017 | Posted by Alexa Magdalenski in Capital Data Summit - (Comments Off)

The inaugural Capital Data Summit took place on Feb. 15, 2017 at The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner. Here on the NVTC blog, we continue to share content from this exciting event.


Transp Data Summit Logo - TransparentThe Summit’s Role of the CDO panel explored the role of the CDO and provided insights into how the role is evolving. Panelists discussed the adoption of big data and analytics within their respective organizations and identified obstacles that they currently are facing in the performance of their role.

Panelists included Freddie Mac Vice President of Single Family Data Delivery Services Susan Burke, HHS Office of the Inspector General Senior Advisor to the Chief Data Officer Timothy Kropp and District of Columbia Chief Data Officer Barney Krucoff. Booz Allen Principal Data Science Dr. Kirk Borne moderated.

Some of the key points that emerged from the panel included:

  • Data is an enterprise asset that must be supported by flexible architecture so it can be leveraged and utilized across different organizational teams.
  • It is a responsibility of the CDO to reduce friction that prohibits the flow of data across the enterprise and between the enterprise and the public.
  • Since data informs and drives business, many CDOs and their departments are structured under the CEO umbrella today; that doesn’t mean there aren’t strong lines of communication and partnership to the CIO umbrella.

Capital Data Summit: Meg Whitman Keynote

March 7th, 2017 | Posted by Alexa Magdalenski in Capital Data Summit - (Comments Off)

We continue to share content from our inaugural Capital Data Summit that took place on February 15, 2017 at The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner. Scroll down to view HPE’s Meg Whitman full Capital Data Summit keynote presentation video.


Whitman FiresideThe 2017 Capital Data Summit was headlined by three top keynotes: Hewlett Packard Enterprise President and CEO Meg Whitman, Clarabridge Founder and Vice Chairman Sid Banerjee, and DigitalGlobe Founder, Chief Technical Officer and Executive Vice President Dr. Walter Scott.

Whitman sat down with Inova Center for Personalized Health CEO and NVTC Board Chair Todd Stottlemyer for a “fireside chat” conversation. Whitman explained how big data is powering the next industrial revolution, allowing new insights through predictive analytics. She shared how innovations like memory-driven, rather than processing-driven, computing are allowing HPE to provide intelligent services “at the edge” where data is collected rather than on a central server.

In discussing the future of the industry, Whitman stressed the importance of skilling the next generation of data employees and the pivotal role universities will play in partnering with the private sector to meet these talent demands. View Whitman’s full keynote below:

The inaugural Capital Data Summit took place on Feb. 15, 2017 at The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner. Here on the NVTC blog, we continue to share content from this exciting event.


Transp Data Summit Logo - TransparentThe Summit’s engaging VC and Growth Investing in Commercial and Government Data Opportunities panel shared approaches in analyzing, financing and building successful businesses, and the latest data investing opportunities in the commercial and government markets. Panelists included Updata Partners General Partner Carter Griffin and Revolution Growth Partner Steve Murray. MAVA Executive Director Julia Spicer moderated.

Here are some of the valuable points that emerged from this discussion:

  • Greater Washington’s loyal and expert talent pool set the region apart from other tech hubs in terms of investing. According to Griffin, “Around here…we find people are loyal to the cause and want to join these companies and really build something. I think that’s a nice backdrop for building a company.”
  • Investments hinge on a company being able to solve a fundamental problem or improve the customer experience. Companies must be able to explain why they are “nailing their niche.”
  • Investors are finding themselves betting on technology trends that may happen in five to ten years.
    • Investments in machine learning, artificial intelligence and unstructured data enterprises are rapidly expanding today.
  • While entrepreneurship continues to grow in areas beyond Silicon Valley like Greater Washington, Boston and Austin, there are valuable lessons to be learned from the Silicon Valley ecosystem that does a great job fostering entrepreneurship:
    • Silicon Valley has a strong culture of mentorship and collaboration that can be fostered further in other areas
    • The networking culture in the Valley is unmatched; entrepreneurs are confident talking about their products in a variety of settings
    • Silicon Valley entrepreneurs are not as hesitant to make mistakes
    • There is stronger collaboration between established service providers and startups; service providers in the Valley really take the time to help startups grow
