In a recent MeriTalk report, “Destination Cloud: The Federal and SLED Cloud Journey” report, only 48% of state and local agencies, 60% of higher education institutions, and 55% of Federal agencies have integrated cloud solutions into their overall IT strategies. On February 8, the Cloud Computing Caucus Advisory Group met at the Rayburn House Office Building to hear from Federal and state agencies on their cloud strategies and how government can navigate the journey to the cloud.

We all know the benefits of the cloud, so why do less than half of state and local governments utilize cloud solutions? While the numbers in higher education tell a slightly higher story, are security concerns preventing organizations – government and education alike – from fully trusting the cloud? Do IT decision makers within state and local organizations have plans to increase cloud computing implementations within their institutions? Join this panel to hear from State and Higher Ed CIOs on their success stories and challenges with cloud adoptions.
Agency CIOs have made it clear that they want to expedite their cloud migrations, so what is the holdup? How might legislation such as the Modernizing Government Technology Act of 2016 allow agencies to better invest their resources into cloud computing? Will recent reforms to FedRAMP finally allow agencies to take full advantage of the program? Don’t miss this panel with Federal IT leaders to learn how agencies are taking advantage of all cloud computing has to offer – from apps to storage to security and more.
