Hello Public Sector customers and colleagues:
As follow-on to the Tech America US Cloud Commission for State-Local Government cloud computing roadmap and Cloud Community Portal to expand collaboration and idea exchange with government and industry, SAP is pleased to invite you to attend a series of 3-5 free knowledge webinars entitled:
“Roadmap to the Cloud: From Virtualization to your Optimal Cloud Solution.”
The first recorded session on 24 April covering Fundamentals of Virtualization to “get Cloud-Ready” received rave reviews.
Recording is also available for the second session on 22 May: Case Study Bonanza for virtualizing government applications: 911, Open Data for transparent government, GIS for economic development.
There was great dialogue with collaboration around the Cook County, IL Open Data initiative — first in US to combine city-county-state Data Portal, as well as how virtualization led to successful economic gardening for new jobs in Pueblo County, CO.
The third session from 19 June is being rescheduled to late summer. Details to follow.
From Virtualization to Cloud: Basics and benefits of cloud deployment models and service types
