The As-a-Service Summit 2017 will bring together leading executives and practitioners from the Public Sector to discuss practical steps to ensure you obtain the required benefits. This is the ideal event for agencies in the middle of their transition who are looking to get all of their core questions answered.
With Government jurisdictions across the country pushing a “cloud first” approach, agencies are now selecting what they want to transition and what they desire to keep in house.
As issues continue to be raised around vendor capability, security and cost; agencies must now take a proactive stance if they want to truly reap the benefits of the as-a-service model.

Amazon Web Services
In 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) began offering IT infrastructure services to businesses in the form of web services — now commonly known as cloud computing. One of the key benefits of cloud computing is the opportunity to replace up-front capital infrastructure expenses with low variable costs that scale with your business. With the Cloud, businesses no longer need to plan for and procure servers and other IT infrastructure weeks or months in advance. Instead, they can instantly spin up hundreds or thousands of servers in minutes and deliver results faster.
