Determining Your Agency’s Cloud Readiness

You’ve probably thought something along the lines of, “I’ve been told to embrace cloud to reduce data center costs, but I’m not sure I’m ready for cloud. Where do I begin?” If you’re a government leader and these questions resonate with you, then this is the right course to help you get some answers.

By taking this course, you’ll be enrolled in six lessons that explain cloud computing in government infrastructures. We’ll begin by defining cloud computing, as well as its five essential characteristics. Then, we’ll walk you through important considerations for migrating to the cloud like security, application onboarding, and operations and maintenance.

We’ll then show you a practical case study to help you better combine these considerations for your particular agency as you migrate to the cloud. Finally, we’ll describe the Department of Defense’s transition to the cloud.

To learn more about cloud computing in government, we’ll also hear from expert, Greg Souchack, Partner and Service Area Leader, Managed Services and Cloud Solutions at IBM, an industry leader in providing cloud services to government.
