Many public sector organizations have identified cloud transformation as essential, but are constrained by regulatory and policy restrictions, and organizational limitations. The difficulty involved in making a business case for public cloud spending often leads to questions of how to:

Increase citizen engagement: Government agencies are under pressure to improve citizen engagement and modernize user experiences. Moving to cloud enabled tools, provides agencies with a way to quickly launch applications and services to improve citizen needs and determine actionable insights.
Drive cost-effectiveness of infrastructure: Legacy hardware and maintenance requires significant time and capital, and workload-based computing power. Leveraging the cloud can result in greater scalability of investments. Flexible pricing models allow government agencies to pay as they go or bring their own license, replacing capital expenses with manageable operational expenses.
Compliance and security: Experts recognize that security in the cloud is better than it is with on-premises infrastructure. Broad security certification and accreditation, data encryption at rest and in transit, hardware security modules and strong physical security all contribute to a more secure way to manage your organization's IT infrastructure.
