Heading into 2021, government agencies are focused on digital transformation. A large part of this transformation is powered by the cloud. It can be difficult for agencies to begin the journey to the cloud, but even more challenging to identify if they are on the right path as cloud implementation begins and new options like the second-gen cloud become available. Erik Benner, VP of Enterprise Transformation with Mythics, discusses the importance of taking stock in your agency’s cloud standing in this video.
“As the federal government moves to the cloud, is your agency prepared for this transformation?” he asked. If you are one of the many agencies suffering from outages, extra charges, unpredictable performance, and most importantly, security vulnerabilities, it’s time to rethink your cloud journey.
With second-generation cloud technologies, agencies bypass these challenges, all while cutting costs. Agencies that switch to the second-gen cloud can expect to save about 50 percent, with the right partner. As agencies navigate the cloud acquisition process, it’s important to look to providers that are FedRAMP certified and take security seriously, said Benner.
“Security should not be an afterthought that is bolted on,” shared Benner. “The cloud should not only be secure from day one but should also offer free tools to keep your data safe at all times.”
