To keep up with our country’s pace of innovation and ensure mission success, government agencies are under more pressure than ever to accelerate their IT modernization projects (and for some, just get them off the ground!). As agencies incur various challenges in their progress, they might be wondering if there’s an easy button for modernization. To explore successful strategies and hear practical execution tips for IT modernization, we invite you to RSVP and join us Wednesday, March 27 from 6 – 8:30 p.m. for a Microsoft Azure Government DC meetup, Is there an easy button for gov IT modernization?, at 1776 in Crystal City, Virginia.
