Open Hybrid Government Cloud for Stable, Secure & Scalable Citizen Services

Jump to section

According to Forrester’s Business Technographics Infrastructure Survey, 2021, although public cloud is in use by close to 90% of all government agencies world-wide, Forrester frequently fields questions from Public sector cloud leaders asking whether hybrid cloud will survive in the world of cloud migration. The answer is obvious: Yes, it will. Executing on new technology can be complex and costly. Completely switching from today's current infrastructure reality to one based 100% on public cloud is so prohibitively expensive that the practice is almost non-existent. Yet only 63% of government agencies claim to be using a hybrid approach despite reporting reservations about public cloud from a sovereignty, privacy, compliance, and skills perspective. For those agencies who have embraced an open hybrid cloud the benefits are obvious - a more resilient, secure and performant computing environment with a greater economic impact.

Join this webinar commissioned by Red Hat and Intel, where our guest speaker, Forrester’s Principal Analyst, Sam Higgins, will share the latest insights from Forrester’s Infrastructure Cloud Survey 2022 and the increasing desire of public sector agencies world-wide to leverage cloud-native technologies in a way that addresses the citizen demand from their governments to digitize services and yet protect their digital sovereignty. During this interactive session Red Hat’s APAC Chief Field Technologist for APAC, Vincent Caldeira will provide his observations and reflections on these trends., Vincent will then invite Pan Yong NG, Chief Cloud Engineer, Home Team Science & Technology (HTX), Singapore to join a panel discussion exploring how Red Hat’s OpenShift is addressing the needs of government agencies through open standards and trusted software supply chains.
