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
Making the leap to a private or hybrid cloud can be scary for government – but the rewards can be significant. Join Government Technology and the Center for Digital Government as we discuss why it’s better to jump sooner rather than later – and why ”on demand” is the most effective cloud and capacity choice.
Most government organizations are either in the cloud with email today or are contemplating such a move. There are many pros and cons to making such a change but it's important to not lose sight of the implications to advanced threat protection and your organization's security posture.
