WIN's volunteer Board, Sub-Committees and WIN membership work to increase awareness and diversity, and influence positive change through thoughtful outreach, event sponsorship, networking, and mentoring.

This event will consist of two sessions. First, a networking session from 7:30 to 8am then at 8:15 the 3 person Speaker Panel will begin. In this session, our government panelists will provide their experience on how they began their cloud initiative and the progress they have made to date.  We will address the functional, financial, and technical aspects of the cloud and cover topics such as:

Why move to the cloud and what cloud makes sense for me?

Who are my Stakeholders and Champions and how do I engage them?

What are the security requirements and when do I need to be compliant?

How do I build my business case for cloud and what must I include?

How much will it cost and when will it be complete?

How do I manage my cloud vendor and what resources do I need?

Attendees will also have their opportunity to ask questions of the panel during the networking session.
