Federal agencies continue to face infrastructure decisions, be it strategic, tactical, and/or operational. Cloud migration, datacenter optimization, and information protection represent key decision points as agencies address scalability, agility, and portfolio management. And while no universal approach exists, the General Services Administration seeks to assist public sector entities via its Application Rationalization Playbook.

In this session, government and industry experts will cover:

  • Three keys to a successful cloud adoption: security, procurement, and workforce
  • Using DevSecOps to manage datacenter infrastructures
  • Rationalizing application portfolios to drive federal cloud adoption
  • Using an interdisciplinary approach to IT modernization 

Live event date: Wednesday, May 12, 2021 | 2 p.m. ET

On-demand event: Available for one year afterward.
