For example, the Obama administration has pushed for a move to cloud computing to cut technology and support costs and provide agencies with a common infrastructure. The GAO reported in July 2012 that federal agencies have made progress implementing OMB's "Cloud First" policy. And Government Technology magazine reports that a cloud policy will shape the future of IT management in government. But what does the move to cloud computing mean in practical terms for federal agencies and the people they serve Stacey Harris, vice president of Research & Advisory Services at Brandon Hall Group, will lead a panel discussion on the changes and future opportunities for government agencies with the following experts: Sean DuGuay, director, Business Development, CGI Federal Solutions Terry Miller, COO of federal government operations, Visionary Integration Professionals Geoff Perry, director of Software Development and Hosted Solutions, Meridian Webinar takeaways will include: Learn the difference between IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS Understand the fundamental elements of an integrated Federal HCM solutions Get examples of integrated federal solutions "Cloud computing is just one of the technology shifts that government agencies are now making a part of their strategies," said John Leh, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Meridian. "The 'cloud' can actually increase the security of information systems for government. But, for that to happen, it's important to have certain policies and procedures in place before an implementation; you also need assurances that your vendor is complying with government security requirements."
