Cloud Computing: Which Agencies Are Doing it Best?
And How Yours Can Get There

On-Demand Webcast
Duration: 1 hour

Moving agency systems to the cloud can save time and budget resources, as well as precious real estate. By storing services in an off-site computer bank, agencies can recognize savings as clouds can pack computer programs more tightly and customers pay for storage space and energy in the same way you pay your utilities -- paying only for what you use.

The government expects to eventually save about $5 billion annually by transferring one-fourth of the government’s $80 billion annual information technology bill to the cloud.

As more and more agencies move services such as email, collaboration tools, records management, software-as-a-service tools and more to the cloud, which agencies are doing it best? And what can we learn from small agency migrations? Join us for a webcast sharing the experience of two agencies that have moved to the cloud.

  • The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) – Facebook’s S-1 filing prompted the SEC to take its operations to the cloud in an expedited, one week move. To date, the SEC has moved more than 40 applications to the cloud as part of a plan to modernize.
  • The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) – By moving to the cloud and a shared services model, NEA is significantly reducing its real estate footprint

This webcast will enable you to:
  • Effectively manage the transition to the cloud
  • Develop procedures and policies once a cloud system is in place
  • Improve workflow and gain cost savings after moving to the cloud
