Moving government data to the cloud - addressing the challenges

On demand

 Within a very short period of time, cloud has become a key interest of governments as they seek to find that balance of agility with tight budgets. More and more, cloud is being seen as a way to enable governments at all levels to operate securely, with enhanced efficiency, and at a more rapid rate than previously thought possible.

While some are still developing their cloud strategies, others have already pressed ahead. As governments around the world use cloud to automate processes, manage content, collaborate, and engage citizens in new ways, it becomes increasingly important to the understand challenges such as:

User experience - Quick, painless setup, with no need to install drivers or applications, and minimal changes to the source database
Legacy applications - Many government applications are aging legacy applications, some decades old and in a wide variety of technologies, languages, and platforms
Migration - How to move everything over without having to turn off the lights as the process is running its course
Reliability - Services in the public sector are often considered part of mission-critical infrastructure where interruptions can have wide impacts on citizens
Security - Governments hold a wide range of sensitive and private information with a multitude of security challenges with a level of trust
Data sovereignty - The need for information to be retained within geographic bounds

Modern cloud architectures offer new strategies to meet these challenges and deliver the benefits of an agile, cost-efficient service. While governments can and should conduct a real due diligence, they cannot afford to ignore what cloud and hybrid architectures can deliver.

On July 5th, IT World Canada CIO and Chief Content Officer Jim Love and AWS Principal Solutions Architect Geordie Anderson will discuss the benefits and challenges to migrating government data to the cloud. Related topics to be explored in this session include:

Challenges facing government and its vast stores of citizen data
Cloud security - where it was, where it is today
Cloud options available, from hybrid to fully managed
AWS Database Services, including Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS), Amazon Aurora, and various migration options
