Moving smart: Cloud accelerators for government - NEW LOCATION!

According to a recent Government Accountability Office report, only 11 percent of federal IT systems are running on the cloud while the Department of Defense uses cloud for about 3 percent of its tech. As many government agencies look to accelerate their drive to the cloud, they can encounter various roadblocks to picking up the pace. With this in mind, we invite you to RSVP and join the Microsoft Azure Government user community for our next meetup, Moving smart: Cloud accelerators for government, on July 31 at our NEW LOCATION in DC from 6 – 8:30 p.m. During this free event you’ll hear from government and industry experts who will provide strategies, insights and resources that can help you break through some of the top barriers to cloud adoption including connectivity, governance, compliance, training, and more. Detailed agenda and speakers to be announced soon. RSVP now to secure your spot for an evening of great content, discussion, networking opportunities and refreshments. Please be sure to invite your colleagues and connections to join, too. As always, there will be great networking opportunities and refreshments during our Meetup, which is FREE and open to the public. We also invite you to check out and join our Microsoft Azure Gov DC user community on Meetup (www.meetup.com/DCAzureGov/). This dynamic community of over 2,400 members hosts monthly Meetups to share best practices in driving cloud innovation in government.
