Meetup recap: IT governance for cloud – gov best practices

Karina Homme

IT governance is top of mind for many CIOs and the lack thereof is slowing down digital transformation. Watch the latest Azure Gov DC Meetup, IT Governance for Cloud – Gov Best Practices, for insights and strategies needed for an effective cloud migration. Highlights include:

  • Former White House CIO, Karen Britton, discussing the importance of cloud readiness and evaluating all options when making the move to the cloud.
  • John Peluso, CTO, AvePoint reviewing recent National Archives and Records Administration announcements and guidelines regarding electronic records management. Did you know that by 2022, NARA will no longer accept transfers of temporary or permanent records in non-electronic form?
  • Microsoft’s CTO of US Civilian, Kent Cunningham, revealing the largest cloud service in production in terms of users on the internet today.
