Thank you for joining our Cloud Leaders Connect series!
To meet compliance requirements, governmental bodies and their subcontractors must store and process sensitive federal data separately from private sector workloads.
Leading cloud providers like AWS and Microsoft Azure have created isolated governmental regions to serve specific needs in the public sector, which has helped accelerate cloud adoption in the federal space.
But migrating to the cloud not only requires a different approach to regulatory compliance, but also operational management and application architecture as well.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Benefits of the cloud in the public sector
- Key compliance frameworks that apply to governmental agencies
- Types of IaaS offerings available
- Cloud best practices
Government agencies require precise planning and support when it comes to software implementation. Carefully navigating the intricacies of regulations and mandates, organization structure, lobby groups, and complex contracts is essential for success.

This webinar highlights the key take-aways for public sector entities of a comprehensive multi-year global research study sponsored by SAS, which is conducted by MIT Sloan Management Review.
This most recent study uncovers key factors of business-driven innovation, including cultural and process factors, the pivotal role of data governance, and burgeoning opportunities with machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Once considered to be a little behind the curve in the move to the cloud, the Public Sector is now well and truly on the journey.
This webinar discusses the findings of the iGov and Informatica ‘Cloud Connectivity In Public Sector 2017 Survey" and the groundbreaking snapshot of a sector on the move.
We will talk to key findings including:
* Only 5% of our respondents now believe that cloud isn’t suitable for their IT strategy.
* Two thirds consider cloud to be a core part of their enterprise architecture.
* Only 6% have deployed a cloud integration platform, but almost half plan to implement an iPaaS in the next two years.
The Public Sector sits firmly in a hybrid world and this survey provides an insight into the sector’s plans for the future.
From May 2018, the new EU General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) will require all Public Sector organisations to more effectively understand how they manage data on their citizens, contractors and staff. Citizens will have significantly more rights and powers on how their data is used and consumed, with large fines available for any breaches of the regulation.
Join this webinar to understand:
- What GDPR is and what it means to Public Sector bodies
- The potential impact of Brexit
- The range of data challenges and opportunities the new regulation will create
- What data capabilities agencies will need to consider
- Learn what best practice approaches commercial organisations are already taking to ensure timely compliance
Migrating to the cloud poses challenges for any organization, but there are particular concerns for the public sector. Government regulations like FedRAMP and the upcoming DFARS must be met, but security in the cloud is different than in the data center. Cloud providers use a Shared Responsibility Model, where they secure the physical infrastructure and the rest is up to the customer. In the public sector, budgets have to be justified... and used, at the risk of decreasing in the next year. Given the potential for Cloud Sprawl, without a Cloud Management Platform, expenses can get out of control.
This webinar serves as a guide for public sector organizations looking to embrace the cloud. We will discuss the specific requirements of public sector organizations and explain the choices that will need to be made during such a migration. Topics covered include:
- What terms do I need to know?
- What questions do I need to ask?
- What are some common pitfalls?
- What tools are available to help?

Join Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Forrester Research for an informative webinar "Using big data to escape the growing public sector paper avalanche!"
To serve their citizens, federal/national, state and local governments must gather, create, or process sensitive information. As various high-profile breaches have demonstrated, this data is not sufficiently protected, particularly from the insiders whose actions are responsible for the majority of public sector security incidents. Traditional network security focuses on detecting outsiders attempting to steal data or disrupt network operations, but does little to monitor or limit the actions of legitimate users that make mistakes or deliberately misuse data. User and directory controls verify legitimate users, but they won't prevent accidental disclosure of sensitive data, exfiltration of sensitive data by legitimate users, or insiders with stolen credentials from accessing data. Preventing security incidents and protecting government information requires a comprehensive, organization-wide access approach that can accommodate the context of individual users, the data they need access to, and the limits on what they can do with that data.
The Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform prevents security incidents while fully enabling user productivity by granting access contextually to those who need it, and denying it to all others. This, coupled with denying all applications that are not needed by the organization, immediately reduces a government organization’s threat posture. Join us to learn more.
In state and local government, IT professionals are being asked to do more with less. More applications, security, management capabilities, users, locations, connected devices, and smart technology. Less money, time, man-hours, network complexity, and downtime.
In many instances, public sector agencies and organizations are discovering essential efficiency improvements through software-defined, cloud-managed solutions. With the convergence of wired and wireless WAN, connecting people, places, and things is easier than ever.
Join our webinar at 9 a.m. PDT/12 p.m. EDT on Sept. 15, 2016, for an intriguing look at government use cases for LTE, software-defined networks, and remote cloud management.
Traditional report factories are rapidly becoming obsolete. Government organizations are shifting to self-service analytics and looking for a sustainable, yet long-term approach to governance that satisfies the needs of both the business and IT. The business needs real-time access to data to drive critical decisions. IT needs to audit and manage data to ensure it’s accurate, secure, and governed to scale. With only 8% of people in traditional organizations able to both ask and answer their own questions, it’s time to take a closer look at your analytics strategy.
In this 45-minute webinar, you'll learn how:
•Visual data analysis brings speed, value, accuracy, and collaboration that leads to a culture of analytics
•Modern enterprises are eliminating boundaries between IT and the business
•Shifting to enterprise grade self-service analytic tools empowers both the business and IT
•Building the modern ecosystem with strategic partnerships allows you to focus on business impact
In this webinar we explain how Public Sector organisations are using predictive analytics to make sense of their data to improve outcomes, allocate resources more effectively and reduce costs.
