Cloud computing has been a subject of discussion for many years and a concept that goes back to early years of distributed computing. Some government organizations have already moved their IT infrastructure to the Cloud while others are barely testing the waters -- most are somewhere in between. What can we learn from early Cloud adopters? What has worked? What are the challenges?

Join Government Technology magazine, Brandon Williams, Digital Transformation Officer for the State of Colorado, and Flint Waters, former CIO of the State of Wyoming, now Google employee, in a discussion about transitioning government IT to the Cloud.  

The discussion will include:

  • Wyoming and Colorado's Journey to the Cloud
  • Identifying onramps to the cloud
  • Security and compliance in the Cloud
  • Becoming a government IT change agent
  • And more.
