Limited Attendance: Government Only

Hindsight is 20/20. Cloud continues to be pivotal in driving the IT modernization agenda, but there are lessons to be learned from the last 18 months of cloud migrations and implementations. Join your government peers for an interactive roundtable discussion where we’ll review what cloud strategies have worked, what tools have helped agencies transition easily as well as where data migration and classification have been challenging. We will also touch on the impact of the shift from capital to O&M expenditures on the modernization timeline. Get the inside scoop on how these insights apply to the next wave of hybrid cloud implementations in your agency.

Please contact Yasmin Atef at yatef@meritalk.com or (703) 883-9000 ext. 103 if you are interested in attending this discussion […]
