Come hear Colin Powell at the HP Government Summit

Government offices are not immune from the effects and demands of BYOD, cloud, Big Data and mobility. On April 2, HP Software will be hosting the HP Government Summit which will tackle these tough IT developments and the unique needs of government.

 

To fully meet these new challenges, you have to be fully armed and educated. This New Style of IT requires a new approach that better leverages what you have and justifies what you need to invest going forward.

He served from 1989-1993 as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for both President George H.W. Bush and President Bill Clinton, and was not only the youngest officer and first ROTC graduate to ever serve in the position but also was the first African-American to do so. During his time as chairman, he oversaw 28 crises including the Panama intervention of 1989 and Operation Desert Storm in the victorious 1991 Persian Gulf War.

 

Under President George W. Bush, Powell was appointed the 65th Secretary of State and was unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate. As secretary of state, he led the State Department in major efforts to address and solve regional and civil conflicts - in the Middle East, Sudan, Congo and Liberia, in the Balkans, Cyprus, Haiti, Northern Ireland, Afghanistan and Iraq, and elsewhere. In all areas, he used the power of diplomacy to build trust, forge alliances and then help transform these unstable regions into areas where societies and cultures have the potential to prosper. He also worked at the forefront of American efforts to advance economic and social development worldwide.
