Like industry, as the public sector's adoption of cloud computing evolves, it's become clear that the end state for many will be hybrid and multi-cloud. These terms are prominent everywhere, from analyst reports, to news articles, to vendor marketing content to government mandates. What public sector leaders struggle with is why and when are hybrid and multi-cloud appropriate and valuable, and what are the key factors that must be considered to choose the optimal model. This panel of experts will discuss these factors and arm government leaders with a better understanding of both approaches and how to determine the best model for their organizations.
