Yesterday's
Breakfast & Schmooze

Thanks to the 450 of you who attended our Women's event this morning. We'll be making a donation of some of the proceeds for relief in Haiti. All donations continue to be critical. You can support the Red Cross here.

 
Yesterday morning, we hosted DoD Deputy CIO Dave Wennergren, whom you may remember we named the second most influential person in Federal IT on last year’s Power 50 list. (If you don't remember that list, it was in five installments: here, here, here, here and here.)
 
DoD Deputy CIO Dave Wennergren

Dave’s not exiting stage right, but delivering primo information. He says DoD IT dollars will be going to: new capabilities that can be delivered quickly and align with the department’s enterprise architecture; cloud computing innovations; and web 2.0 technologies. He also says the department is continuing its push toward a service-oriented approach where DoD organizations can pick from certain core services to build what they need.

Thanks to our wonderful sponsors: Here’s Pillsbury Partner Joe Jensen, Avaya VP of Sales Joe Rogers, and Ericsson Federal CEO (and noted Harley rider) Doug Smith exchanging comments with Dave when we brought industry chieftains to the stage.

Crowd at Bisnow Breakfast & Schmooze

Nearly 150 of you came out for a wonderful event. By the way, we're thinking of updating our Power 50 list for the Obama era, so send us thoughts about who should be on it: techstories@bisnow.com.

Northwestern Mutual’s Gary Carlson, Ericsson’s David Boggs, and HP’s Betsy Hight

Did we mention the great networking? Northwestern Mutual’s Gary Carlson, Ericsson’s David Boggs, and HP’s Betsy Hight. Betsy might look a bit strange out of uniform, to most of you who know her better as Rear Admiral Hight, former Vice Director of DISA. (See who shows up at these things?)

Audio Video Systems’ David Winks, Digital Sandbox’s Chris Carlston, and Verizon’s John West

Audio Video Systems’ David Winks, Digital Sandbox’s Chris Carlston, and Verizon’s John West. Chris tells us, unlike last year, Digital Sandbox isn’t providing risk management expertise to the Super Bowl, but they will be doing next year’s game, not to mention this season’s NBA All-Star game.

 
CGI’s Gail Guseman and Aronson Capital Partners Thomas Williams

CGI’s Gail Guseman and Aronson Capital Partners Thomas Williams (we see him everywhere). Thomas says Aronson did eight deals last year and is looking to top that in '10. Gail is celebrating, too: She heads DoD sales at CGI and the company is celebrating its $395 million contract win with the State Department earlier this week: “We did pop some champagne bottles.”

 
FedSources’ Mary Gostel, Allen Corporation’s Carey Radican and Chris Demetrius, and Ameriprise’s Cole Smith

FedSources’ Mary Gostel, Allen Corporation’s Carey Radican and Chris Demetrius, and Ameriprise’s Cole Smith. While everyone talked business, we turned this group toward something really important: football. We even got Cole to predict the Jets will meet the Saints in the Super Bowl.

 
Oakhill Farm Group’s Carmine Taglialatela and Fairfax County Economic Development’s Meti Fekadu.

Two of the busiest men about town: Oakhill Farm Group’s Carmine Taglialatela and Fairfax County Economic Development’s Meti Fekadu. Meti is vice chair of the NVTC’s Business to Government committee where we are a media sponsor.
