Panel: Embracing the Future of Cloud and Data within the Federal Government

The pandemic has only accelerated and deepened agency’s responses to create the work-from-anywhere environment that harnesses cloud resources of every kind, from public, to private and hybrid. Having proven that remote work can work well, many agencies have moved past their initial cloud efforts and are restructuring for the longer modernization haul. In making those plans to migrate, agencies have to consider cloud security and usability compromises, how cloud infrastructure platforms can scale, and figure out how to incorporate multi- and hybrid-cloud requirements. Tune into this panel to hear from topic experts on the response of the pandemic to the Federal cloud space, as well as where Federal cloud will go in the future.

Listen in as topic experts go in depth about their Federal agency cloud modernization experiences, the importance of including cloud and management platforms in modernization plans, and the value of platform scalability and security in modernizing. Where do these topic experts see Federal cloud and data going within the Federal Government? What IT innovation and technology will help them get it there?
