Getting your agency to next-level cloud adoption

Online event

As many agencies approach the next level of cloud adoption, they’re facing new modernization challenges and demands ranging from governance to IT cost management, data silos to cybersecurity, and cloud integration and more.

To learn how to get your agency to the next level in its cloud journey, RSVP and join us for a virtual Azure Government Meetup on Wednesday, June 23 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET.

During this event, which is free and open to the public, we’ll look at the steps organizations can make toward a more effective government cloud including landing zones, charge-back, governance, and compliance. We’ll also discuss common challenges, and ways to overcome them.

Featured speakers:
- Rick Inzunza, IT Specialist at US Department of Homeland Security
- Susie Adams, Chief Technology Officer, Microsoft Federal Sales

About us:
The Azure Government User Community was created to bring together professionals interested in learning about government innovation, especially around cloud computing technologies and capabilities. It's open to the community and provides a non-sales environment to share best practices and learnings during monthly meetups (now virtually) that draw government and industry attendees.

Launched in February 2016 by Karina Homme, senior director, Microsoft Azure Government, and Vishwas Lele, CTO of AIS and Microsoft Azure MVP, the Azure Government DC User Community (https://www.meetup.com/DCAzureGov/) currently comprises 3,800+ members and continues to grow.
