Panel: How to Migrate to the Cloud and Keep Your Data Secure

Cloud migration is facilitating fundamental changes in the way Federal employees work, making the recent massive shifts to hybrid work possible and enhancing collaboration throughout organizations. Although this shift to cloud has proven essential with the workforce shift, there have been obstacles to overcome in the process. Agencies need to make sure their data is secure and the environment is safe. The migration process itself is risky, with the transfer of large volumes of data from one platform to another, so it only makes sense, that once the data is in the cloud, to do everything possible to keep it secure. 

Tune into this panel to hear from Federal topic experts on the reasons to migrate to the cloud, common migration experiences, and the benefits cloud migration can bring. What lessons have these topic experts learned while making the shift to the cloud? What challenges did they face? What best strategies did they have to put in place to overcome these challenges? And how have they kept the cloud secure for their agencies?

Panel: Strategies for Leveraging Data in a Multicloud Environment

Agencies have come to accept the cloud and the migration of data to the cloud as the new normal. The adoption of a hybrid multicloud strategy is crucial to leverage data and consume cloud resources consistently across agency infrastructures. Doing so provides more cloud flexibility and  reduces dependence on a single cloud hosting provider. So what is the best way for agencies to implement public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid multi cloud strategies? 

Join this summit as topic experts discuss strategies that agencies can implement to provide a better experience with the cloud and how they can achieve the full benefits with one in place
