It’s never been more important for organizations to stay connected. Teams need to be able to share insights and collaborate on ideas no matter where they’re working. Even before the pandemic, governments across the country were already moving to cloud communication tools. The disruptions of the past eight months have accelerated the public sector’s surge toward the cloud.

But migrating your content to the cloud can be a challenge.

In this educational half-hour webinar on November 20 at 11am PT/2pm ET. Government Technology and Quest will walk through the basics of content migration to one of the gold-standard cloud communication tools, Office 365. As a participant in this webinar, you’ll learn:

· How to seamlessly migrate your existing content to Office 365 with zero impact to end users
· How cloud platforms empower your team to communicate and collaborate from the office, from home and anywhere else
· How cloud tools provide greater flexibility in the current environment, and greater resiliency in the face of future crises
