Use these resources to start your learning journey and help you migrate your workloads to the cloud.

Expectations of governments are quickly evolving. From the public’s perspective, they want personalized digital experiences and don’t want to spend their time waiting in line or navigating government portals and services.

From an operations standpoint, with the rise of remote work – governments need to be able to enable a hybrid working environment and keep their workforce productive by giving them the ability to securely share data and collaborate not just within their own team but across multiple government agencies.

Governments are also realizing that the ability to innovate fast is key when they need to respond to unplanned events whether it’s the continuation of benefit distribution during a social crisis, tele health visits for medical needs, natural disasters, or outages. 

To overcome these challenges and accomplish their objectives, many government entities are looking to migrate their data to the cloud, vs. keeping their data on-premises.

There are many benefits of migrating your data to the cloud, like: 

  • The ability to optimize government investments as well as ability to streamline, helping you reach optimized efficiency and collaboration.
  • Improved performance and efficiency within government services – allowing you to automate operations; quicky create and deploy new government digital programs and services that are accessible and reliable; and scale to meet public demands to ensure reliable access to vital government programs and services.
  • Mitigate risks with built-in security and compliance so you can quickly detect and respond to threats, reducing your time needed to remediate threats by 50%.
  • Accelerate Innovation and fuel responsible and secure AI innovation to further enhance public experience, increase government’s productivity by increasing the job satisfaction of their employees, as they are able to focus on other critical needs as opposed to mundane tasks.
