Government’s Journey to IT Modernization and the Enterprise Cloud

This event qualifies for 3 CPEs

Moving applications to the cloud is a top priority and one of the most often mentioned game-changing technologies for government CIOs today, according to Gartner. But obstacles like lack of experience in cloud migration, security concerns, and acquisition hurdles continue to impede agencies’ progress.

Successful IT modernization includes determining cloud readiness with an eye toward providing mission value that supports digital government, improves the citizen experience, and builds outcome-driven strategies. Innovative contracting along with the guiding hand of experienced partners from across government and industry can maximize agencies’ digital transformation efforts.

This breakfast briefing will take an in-depth look at how agencies are tapping into the cloud for responsive, innovative, and secure IT modernization.
