GovLoop will host a live training on Thursday, April 18th 2:00pm EST, Modernize your GIS in the Cloud. Government agencies are tasked with modernizing their GIS while simultaneously struggling to support outdated hardware and siloed systems. This one-hour conversation highlights how organizations can transform by utilizing services like AWS AppStream 2.0 to stream GIS software directly from the cloud to any end user device without software downloads or installs.
Carole Balzer, Network Administrator at Rogue Valley Sewer Services in Rogue Valley, OR joins Jason Harris, Chief Technology Office at ROK Technologies, LLC in Charleston, SC and Vinoth Narasimha, Senior Product Manager, AppStream 2.0 at AWS in Seattle, WA to discuss how Cloud GIS is a next generation on-demand technology that uses a virtualized platform in a scalable, flexible environment.
“Every day we speak to organizations that they are seeking cost effective ways to modernize their GIS,” said Alex Coleman, EVP at ROK Technologies, LLC. “AppStream 2.0 is a great example of how cloud solutions can make that happen.”
According to Rightscale’s 2018 State of the Cloud Report, 81 percent of enterprises already have a multi-cloud strategy in place and 38 percent of enterprises view cloud adoption as their top priority, up 9 percent from 2017.
At the end of the training, attendees will better understand how government agencies can modernize their GIS systems by moving to the cloud; how GIS managed cloud services can assist with architecture and deployment best practices; and the impact on efficiencies gained from migrating.
