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.
