Follow NASA’s federally funded research and development center, Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), on a journey through social adoption and technical wizardry as they implement their cloud computing infrastructure. With a backdrop spanning sales strategies and spacecraft, you'll learn JPL’s six vectors of adoption and witness some major victories and defeats at the leading U.S. center for robotic exploration of the solar system’s journey to the clouds.
Despite the promise of lower infrastructure costs, collective efficiencies through shared IT services and access to cutting-edge cloud technologies, federal agencies had been held back by concerns over cost and data privacy. In this session, we tackle the essentials of the cloud from a federal perspective. We’ll take you through a 5-step playbook to ensure your agency’s journey to the cloud includes an accurate inventory of assets across all deployments, cloud ownership governance and rules for who owns what, budget management and how to allocate costs back to budget owners, spending your money wisely with spend analysis, and keeping your cloud both secure and compliant within governmental frameworks.
While public cloud adoption is touted as a disruptive technology, cloud impacts more than technology decisions. Let’s explore how the cloud impacts all aspects of an IT department, inside a federal, state, or local agency, from approach to cost to security to requirements to resources. Learn how to budget for cost of infrastructure, how to manage bids and acquisition, and what to think about when planning for cloud security.
With thousands of managed services providers (MSPs) and new ones coming on every day, where do you turn to find the best value, and why? JHC Technology, a Washington, DC-based preferred cloud solution provider for federal, state, and local governments, will discuss what to look for around tenure, competencies, status, and more when navigating the cloud partner landscape.
With the pace of change accelerating in the digital workplace, a responsive and adaptive cloud strategy is often overlooked. Transforming ideas into cloud solutions for government organizations do not have to be filled with volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. We’ll share the success and how to avoid the struggles throughout the journey to the cloud.
