IT modernization is top of mind for government. While most agencies are leading with cloud for their new applications, many struggle to realize the full value of modernization by moving the majority of their enterprise apps to the cloud and creating new citizen services.
And, now, with the latest orders from the White House, there is an even greater sense of urgency to overcome barriers and accelerate ways to boost cloud adoption and overhaul government IT systems to drive agility, cost savings, innovation and mission delivery.
Given these exciting opportunities, we invite you to RSVP and join us for the Microsoft Azure Government Meetup, “Harnessing Cloud: How to Accelerate Your Mission Apps," on Wednesday, May 23, 6 – 8:30 p.m., at 1776 in Washington, DC.
This month, industry experts will share insights and discuss topics including:
• A PaaS-first approach to mission apps
• Achieving TIC compliance
• Opportunities from recent government IT modernization and cloud initiatives
• And, more!
In addition to engaging dialogue and presentations, there will be excellent networking opportunities and refreshments. This Meetup is FREE and open to the public – be sure to RSVP and secure your spot.
