Today’s transformative movement towards a more digital and connected government is driven by the technological trends of big data, social networks, the “Internet of Things,” machine learning and bots. While these technologies can interact with one another, they all share the common foundation of cloud computing. Governments see the benefit of these new technological trends and are now moving to cloud computing.
Over the last five years, I have had the opportunity to help government service delivery leaders ease the transition of moving from their government hosted computing systems to Microsoft’s enterprise public cloud services. We’ve been able to help these transitions through minor adjustments to their approach to IT service delivery and by innovating with new connected government models for assurance.
