Session 1: Cloud Convergence: Bringing all the Pieces Together

2017 is the “crossroads” year for Federal cloud policy, oversight, and modernization. The need to move to more cost effective and agile cloud architectures is driving agencies’ modernization efforts, converging with everything from data compliance, to cyber security, to the IoT, CDM, and more. And, more agencies are looking at cloud brokerage and hybrid cloud management platforms than ever before. Join this panel discussion where we’ll cover how the convergence of all things cloud is impacting the business of government – and address what is still needed to make Federal cloud implementation a reality.
