use the SEI Blog to inform you about the latest work at the SEI, so
this week I'm summarizing some video presentations recently posted to
the SEI website from the SEI Technologies Forum.
This virtual event held in late 2011 brought together participants from
more than 50 countries to engage with SEI researchers on a sample of
our latest work, including cloud computing, insider threat, Agile
development, software architecture, security, measurement, process
improvement, and acquisition dynamics. This post includes a description
of all the video presentations from the first event, along with links
where you can view the full presentations on the SEI website.

As part of an ongoing effort
to keep you informed about our latest work, I'd like to let you know
about some recently published SEI technical reports and notes. These
reports highlight the latest work of SEI technologists in Agile methods, insider threat,the SMART Grid Maturity Model, acquisition, and CMMI.
This post includes a listing of each report, author/s, and links where
the published reports can be accessed on the SEI website.

reliable, secure energy supply is vital to our economy, our security,
and our well being. A key component of achieving a reliable and secure
energy supply is the “smart grid”
initiative. This initiative is a modernization effort that employs
distributed sensing and control technologies, advanced communication
systems, and digital automation to enable the electric power grid to
respond intelligently to fluctuations in energy supply and demand, the
actions of consumers, and market forces with an overall objective to
improve grid efficiency and reliability. A smart grid will also allow
homeowners to track energy consumption and adjust their habits
accordingly. This posting describes several initiatives that the SEI
has taken to support power utility companies in their modernization
efforts to create a smart grid.
