Join Government Technology and Cisco on July 14 at 11am PT/2pm ET as we discuss how digital transformation has never been more strategically important to government IT teams. Workforces have become more distributed with the transition to hybrid work, and government services are being delivered digitally via newly developed, modern applications. Moving forward, governments will have to rethink how they connect, secure and automate their environments to accelerate their digital agility with real-time insights in a cloud-first world.
