Hybridization and Hyper-Scaling
It’s been over five years since then-Federal CIO Vivek Kundra announced the cloud-first policy – and while it’s a common exercise to take a look back at what has transpired over those years, we think it’s time to shift the view and get a clear picture of exactly where we stand now and where we are going.
Agencies aren’t moving to the cloud fast enough – the government spends three-fourths of its IT budget on legacy systems, and GAO reports the budget for modernization will be $7 billion less in 2017 than it was in 2010.
So how do we turn things around? That shift requires a full understanding of cloud not just as an IT function, but as a business model every agency should embrace in one form or another. Join us on Wednesday, November 2 as we discuss the status of cloud adoption across the government – what are the real numbers behind implementation, and what needs to happen from here out to move the heavy workloads and mission systems to the cloud?
