#AzureGov Meetup Recap: Gov Cloud Migration Strategies & Creating a Culture of Change

While cloud is fast becoming the “new normal” for government, agencies are still challenged with the daunting task of IT modernization and developing a cohesive cloud migration strategy. Oftentimes, what’s holding back progress is that there simply isn’t a one-size-fits-all cloud playbook. That, combined with agency culture, hinders many agencies from making the move to cloud.

The November #AzureGov Meetup this week brought in both a packed house and a great lineup of government and industry experts who shared their best practices on critical components for cloud success, including: stakeholder engagement, evaluation, planning, implementation, outcomes…and the cultural changes you need to ensure a smooth transition.

We also celebrated the two year anniversary of the #AzureGov Meetup!


 

You can watch the full Meetup and complete presentations (including a demo of VDI in Azure by  Azure Government Sr. Program Manager and VDI Lead Steve Downs) via the archived livestream here.

(Note that there will be no Meetup this month due to the holidays, but you can go ahead and RSVP for January here. As always, these events are free to the public and offer great networking opportunities both before and after the show! If you won’t be able to make it, just follow AISteam on Twitter for photos, insights and links to the livestream.)
