Hybrid and multi-cloud environments are the future of government computing. Agencies increasingly will use a mix of on-site and cloud-based resources to meet their current needs while modernizing to meet tomorrow’s demands. But hybrid strategies come with new challenges. A recent Center for Digital Government survey of state and local IT officials found that nearly half of them are worried that hybrid computing creates more work for IT staff and almost 70 percent are concerned their employees lack the skills to manage hybrid environments.

Join us Sept. 24 at 11 am PT/2 pm ET for an interactive webcast that will explore the opportunities and challenges of multi-cloud and hybrid computing. Our expert panel will cover: 

  • Key components of a successful hybrid strategy
  • New tools for managing multi-cloud and hybrid environments
  • Approaches for automating policy and security at scale
