Moving Mission Critical Applications to the Cloud
• The Obama Administration's mandate for moving to the cloud is clear. But executing on that "Cloud First" strategy within agencies is less clear-cut. Many federal agencies are finding that integrating business processes and technology in new and better ways helps their organization provide new services, foster better relationships with constituents, manage costs, and increase performance.
Please join us at the Cloud for Public Sector Luncheon Briefing on August 11, 2011! Two federal cloud industry experts will tell you what you need to know to organize and enact your agency's cloud policy.
Moving Mission Critical Application to the Cloud: Mr. Michael Beckley, Chief Technology Officer at Appian, will discuss which processes make sense for cloud deployment. Using real examples of federal and commercial cloud success, he will demonstrate how you can be a leader in meeting the Administration's directive.
The Economics of the Cloud: Ms. Teresa Carlson, VP Global Public Sector at Amazon Web Services, will discuss the economics of cloud computing. In discussing Amazon's technology leadership, she will show you how your agency can reap the financial and operational benefits of the cloud.
This informative event is an excellent venue to network with your peers and:
o Hear how your federal colleagues are managing their move to the cloud and how they have handled the challenges they've encountered
