Recent studies by the Center for Digital Government indicate Cloud Computing as a top priority for state and local government across the country but there is no "one size fits all" strategy. Governments must fully understand and thoughtfully consider not just the opportunities made possible by a community cloud, but also the unique challenges facing public service organizations. 
The Center for Digital Government and Government Technology magazine invite you to a live, interactive discussion on trends and strategies in this new era. You will learn:
  • How can you determine if you are ready for a Cloud strategy 
  • Lessons learned from state and local governments that have "made the move" 
  • Best practices for application modernization and transformation that maximize your options 
  • Security strategies to support new infrastructure models
