Are agencies ready to move into the next phase of their Cloud Smart strategies?

Over the course of three afternoons, Federal News Network will explore the ways in which agencies have moved beyond mere cloud adoption and how they’re using the latest generation of cloud-enabled technologies to transform mission-critical and back-office systems. 

These interviews will bring in senior-level technology and program executives to discuss the state of their transformation efforts and how they intend to use cloud to reshape the delivery of government services. 

Each day will have a unique focus:

  • Day 1: Law enforcement and national security
  • Day 2: Health care
  • Day 3: Travel and transportation

Federal News Network’s team of journalists will talk with leaders and experts across government to share what’s working, what might not be and how agencies continue to pivot in their cloud use to evolve federal infrastructures and the services they support.

Check back regularly as we expand our list of speakers.

Please register using the form on this page or call (202) 895-5023. Once you register, you will have access to the full event.

We look forward to seeing you on Day 1, June 20!
