Moving workloads to the cloud is a complex decision. Agencies need to decide what projects to move to the cloud, in what order, and then choose the right cloud platform -- or mix of platforms -- for each project. This panel will explore that decision-making process, digging deep into the details of cloud operations and describe what to watch for, how to determine when private cloud solutions work best, how to most efficiently structure hybrid cloud solutions, and how to make the best decisions for steering deployment efforts to private or public cloud.

As agency officials know, there’s never one single answer. It depends on agency mission requirements, and any environment may require a mix of cloud platforms. So how do you to find the right flavor of cloud for your particular project? Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from these distinguished panelists on how to most efficiently move certain types of applications to different types of cloud platforms to arrive at the best mix for your environment.
