Watch Now

Most government leaders recognize the value cloud can bring to their organizations. However, they also realize that shutting down to undertake a wholesale cloud migration isn’t realistic. Instead, they must follow a hybrid approach — taking a series of incremental, bite-sized steps toward cloud migration while continuing to manage on-premises data centers, applications and other legacy systems.

  • Strategies King County used to solve talent challenges and improve buy-in by investing in existing staff
