It’s no secret that the Government of Canada’s mission-critical IT systems is aging and some of these systems are at imminent risk of breaking down. The government has made the right move in having a cloud adoption strategy, whereby it recognizes a need to start using cloud computing in the delivery of its IT services.

Today on the show, we will build the case for cloud in creating the next generation of IT infrastructure for government, while helping secure public data with new technologies and at the same time mitigating risks.
