How to enable Central IT to become a Cloud broker

In this episode of the Azure Government video series, Steve Michelotti talks with Scott Gruenmeier (Cloud Solution Architect, State and Local Government practice, Microsoft) about enabling Central IT to become a cloud broker.

Scott starts out with some background on traditional State and Local Government IT, then move into highlighting new cloud-based opportunities, like true disaster recovery, business continuity, enhanced security and scalability for Central ITs.

Steve and Scott look at the difference between a capital expenditure spending model and an operational expenditure spending model, and discuss how State and Local agencies can benefit from shifting to a more operational model – both from a cost and capabilities perspective.

Also covered in this video, Compliance as a Service, Cloud Networking as a Service and enabling cloud migration along with information about available resources and next steps.
