Three Federal Government/DoD Cloud Transition Issues and How to Prevent Them
In 2011, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued the “Cloud First” policy to reform federal information technology management, which required agencies to evaluate cloud computing options. In 2012, the DoD Cloud Computing Strategy evolved to identify the most effective ways for the department to capitalize on opportunities and take advantage of cloud computing benefits that accelerate IT delivery, efficiency, and innovation as an enterprise. In the years since, many cloud transition efforts in both federal agencies and the DoD have experienced significant issues. This webcast addressed a few of the causes for the transition issues, as well as identified some practices that will assist organizations as they plan to transition assets and capabilities to the cloud. The webcast wrapped up with a brief discussion of the 2019 Federal Cloud Computing Strategy – Cloud Smart, an updated cloud policy to improve cloud adoption for federal agencies developed by OMB.
What Attendees Will Learn:
- a better appreciation of the planning needed to transition assets and capabilities to a cloud-only or hybrid cloud computing environment
- key differences in implementing cybersecurity for hybrid cloud computing environments
- how part of a successful cloud transition relies on providing appropriate hybrid cloud computing environment training for an organization’s IT staff
