Transforming government with cloud and AI

Share this post:

This may be the best time to work in — and with — government.

Given the daunting societal challenges we face, from extreme weather to economic development, cyber threats and aging infrastructure — working in government means the chance to do something about them.

With the emergence of cloud, artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain and other new technologies, the ability for leaders and change-makers in government agencies to directly impact public challenges has never been greater.

Writing the next chapter in government cloud adoption

Over the last 10 years, IBM has worked with agencies at all levels of government to make tremendous strides in applying cloud, AI, blockchain and other new technologies.

Cloud and AI, though, are still in their infancy. According to an IBM-commissioned study by McKinsey & Company, less than 20 percent of enterprise workloads are utilizing cloud technology.

We’re entering what we call “chapter 2” of the cloud and AI era. Cloud no longer should be thought of as a “location.” Rather, it’s a set of capabilities in all of an organization’s environments that, when done right, can help to lower costs and deliver innovation and flexibility.

Importantly, “chapter 2” is about bringing cloud, AI, IoT, blockchain and other digital technologies to complex, mission-critical applications. It’s about using all your data and managing applications in a multicloud environment.

Introducing the IBM Government Cloud Virtual Summit

To help your agency succeed in this next chapter, we’ve created the Government Cloud Virtual Summit. No matter how advanced or how early your agency is in terms of cloud and AI, this free, online conference will help you accelerate.

At the Summit you’ll hear government and industry leaders talk about how they’re using new technologies to address a range of mission issues, including rebuilding trust in the aftermath of a cybersecurity breach, responding to natural disasters and improving public safety.

We’ll also look at technology challenges that impact almost every agency, such as finding and attracting talent, adopting modern development practices like agile and DevOps, modernizing legacy applications, securing your cloud environments, managing cloud sprawl and so much more.

This Government Cloud Summit is for leaders and change-makers who want to adopt cloud, AI and other digital technologies faster, who want to do it right, learn where to start and positively impact their mission.

Register now. We can’t wait to see you.
