The World Intelligence Review (WIRe) will host its annual conference entitled, “Beyond Tools: Transforming Online Intelligence,” on February 24-26, 2010 at the Gaylord National Hotel at the National Harbor, MD.
The goal of the 2010 WIRe conference is to propel the Intelligence Community (IC) beyond the static use of tools toward a more dynamic point of cultural transformation and repurposing of the ways that we utilize online intelligence. As we investigate the differences between how the IC and the rest of the world use social media, we will pinpoint best practices across the social networking spectrum and examine how constantly evolving Web and social media tools impact the intelligence mission.
The conference will feature three tracks devoted to specific areas of interest:
• The management track will help managers explore tools and techniques to empower their workforce and lead this cultural transformation in online intelligence.
• The innovator track will enable Enterprise 2.0 advocates and technologists to share their knowledge on implementing innovative tools and ideas.
• The practitioner track will examine pioneering ways to identify, capture, and transfer knowledge.
Breakout sessions for each track will provide attendees with opportunities to delve into case studies, brainstorm, and engage in creative problem solving. Attendees will leave the conference with a deeper understanding of the intelligence potential associated with social media and emerging challenges involved with sharing and securing information. Most importantly, the 2010 WIRe conference will convey implementation strategies to equip intelligence analysts with the practical knowledge and tactics they need to incite change within their organizations.
Intelligence Community (IC), Department of Defense (DoD), military, and academic communities, as well as government contracting and industry representatives.
