Government IT professionals are turning to cloud computing as a new way of providing applications and IT-enabled services to their agencies, at lower costs and with increased flexibility. Many agencies have begun their move to the cloud, but they’re still in the early stages of what will be a long-term shift toward on-demand IT resources. As IT teams make this transition, they must choose between different cloud models and services, and security remains a top concern. Successful implementation will hinge on making the right choices.
GovCloud 2011 is a day-long event where IT professionals in federal, state, and local government will develop a deeper understanding of the options available. Early adopters and other experts will share their experiences and strategies for making the most of cloud services in government IT environments. Topics will include public cloud services, private clouds, hybrid clouds, and shared clouds, and how to use those platforms in a way that minimizes risks and satisfies FISMA and other requirements. Join us for this insightful gathering of government IT executives to hear first-hand about the challenges and opportunities of cloud computing.
