The COVID-19 crisis is triggering both immediate and longer-term challenges for state and local governments. One lesson emerging from the current virus response is that cloud services have enabled public officials to rapidly launch and scale new capabilities for remote workforce collaboration, citizen engagement, and data collection and analysis to meet urgent needs. Looking ahead, cloud also will play a vital role in dealing with what comes next, as governments gear up to meet unprecedented demand for unemployment and social services programs, launch expanded digital services and more.
Join experts from Google Cloud and the Center for Digital Government May 12 at 11am PST/2pm EST for an in-depth look at how state and local agencies are using technology, including Google Cloud, to respond fast and effectively to the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ll unpack some of the most practical and innovative ideas we’ve seen so far, and explain how they can work for your community. We’ll also examine the issues public officials must confront as we enter the next stage of COVID response and recovery.
You’ll learn how state and local government agencies are using scalable cloud services to:
-- Support rapid implementation of remote work
-- Enable data collection and analysis to inform response efforts and policymaking
-- Prepare for potentially unprecedented social services demand as the nation recovers
