Join us: Government cloud strategies: What to know – Feb. 27

Karina Homme

Cloud technologies are critical to keeping pace with innovation and securing America’s technical advantage. Cloud enables leading edge solutions for federal and military agency missions; ranging from improved citizen services and safety to protecting our warfighters and national security.

The importance of cloud to government is evident in the recently-released Department of Defense Cloud Strategy as well as the Office of Management and Budget’s Cloud Smart Strategy proposal released in September 2018.

With this in mind, we invite you to RSVP and join the Microsoft Azure Government DC user community on Wednesday, Feb. 27, from 6 – 8 p.m., to discuss the top things you should know about cloud strategies in government and the application of cloud technologies that can help your agency accelerate the path forward.
