Event description

Description


Managing governance and cloud spend are often cited as top challenges for government. And, while effective governance to ensure control over costs, performance, and security is essential for cloud success, many agencies are not fully leveraging the various tools, resources, and automation capabilities that can enable success.

To hear how agencies can address these challenges, we invite you to RSVP and join us for a Microsoft Azure Government Meetup, “Mastering cloud governance and management in government,” on Wednesday, Aug. 28 from 6 – 8:30 p.m. at 1776 New America in Washington, DC.

During this free event, government and industry speakers will share strategies, insights and demos to help agencies:
  • Maximize visibility, maintain control and ensure compliance
  • Implement automated policies and avoid cloud waste
  • Understand tools and resources that enable governance and cost management success
  • Leverage discount options to optimize spend
