Cloud Public Sector Summit: Doing multi-cloud in the public sector

Wed, Jan 20, 2021 · 10:05 AM · London
About This Webinar

Since 2013, the government has been actively encouraging public sector organisation to adopt a 'Cloud First' approach. While some jumped onboard, many are still at the early stages of their digital transformation journey. With the news of a 3-year AWS/government agreement, it's timely to discuss whether multi-cloud is the best approach for public sector organisations or whether putting all your eggs in the AWS basket could reap greater rewards. This conversation will bring together cloud leaders, who've take different approaches and will analyse - is Multi-cloud right for the public sector?
