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.
