Cloud First to Cloud Smart – IT Modernization Implementation Lessons Learned

Cloud First policy began during a time when cloud computing was still a relatively new technology in the public sector in 2010. In 2018, the policy shifted to Cloud Smart acknowledging multiple new cloud capabilities that emerged since Cloud First. The new policy was founded on three pillars of successful cloud adoption: security, procurement, and workforce. This panel session will share how agencies are modernizing technologies and practices by harness new capabilities to enable agency mission and improve service to citizens.
