Hybrid IT and Cloud

Online: Tuesday, October 5, 2021 | Time: 12:00-2:15pm ET / 9:00-11:15am PT

Finding synergy between parallel IT ecosystems

Hybrid IT and cloud have become critical in the digital transformation of government. When implemented effectively, Hybrid IT and cloud services present many opportunities, including improved flexibility, interoperability, scalability and collaboration.

While cloud adoption is accelerating, there are still barriers preventing public sector organizations from fully embracing it. Legacy systems, technical challenges, compliance issues and the lack of existing roadmaps present persistent obstacles to realizing the full potential of cloud.

How can you best blend architectures to minimize costs and technical challenges while enabling the flexibility and scalability required to drive innovation? Public Sector Network’s Hybrid IT and Cloud Virtual Event will explore how to maximize the benefits of running a mix of cloud and traditional IT systems. Hear from your peers and get the practical tips you need to achieve your IT modernization goals.
