An agency’s journey to the cloud: success is in the details

For the better part of a decade federal agencies have been pushed to move to the cloud.  Even when agency IT leaders have identified a mission-critical and cloud-ready need, it can be challenging to get started on a journey to the cloud. How do agencies know when they've reached that tipping point and how to move forward in their journey to the cloud?

These projects are most successful when driven by a larger digital transformation objective or the imminent loss of support from a legacy system. In this article from Government Technology Insider, Ann Blakely shares insight on how federal agencies can advance their digital transformation journey, when they've come to the realization it no longer makes sense to invest in their older technology.
