Beyond Fairy Dust & The No Police: How Cloud Computing Makes Government Better
Jonathan's business innovation training and experience includes an MS from Georgia Tech's business school and 20+ years of business technology practice with a diverse group of customers: government, military, law enforcement, financial services and healthcare.
From the outside, government cloud computing seems to fall into one of two camps: Either the cloud is magic and fixes everything, or the cloud will be Armageddon for the government. Truly, the answer is neither fairy dust nor everything the No Police would like you to believe. In this webinar, Jonathan Feldman, CIO for the city of Asheville, North Carolina, will lay out several scenarios (smugly called "use cases" by the fairy dust clouderati) where using software-as-a-service (SaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) has helped government agencies deal with the ever-tightening noose of fewer resources and more responsibilities. Join us for a practical cloud computing brainstorm session that is light on the buzzwords and loaded with real world scenarios you can borrow for your own agency.
In this webinar:
- You'll learn what your peers in the public sector are doing.
- You'll gain insight on how citizens can benefit from governmental adoption of cloud computing.
- You'll be able to avoid both the fairy dust mentality and the No Police when getting buy-in for your cloud initiatives.
