Cloud Reverse Industry Training

It’s getting cloudy in here! GSA hosted its first government wide Reverse Industry Training event on June 28, 2018. Hosted by the Office of Procurement Ombudsman and the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Implementation (FedRAMP), the event focused on Cloud adoption and migration, and was designed to help government work through the challenges and issues facing Cloud adoption. The event provided the federal workforce with an opportunity to address concerns faced by their agencies and grow a better understanding of adopting and transmitting to Cloud services.


The event featured Opening remarks by Joanne Collins-Smee, the FAS Deputy Commissioner, a Keynote Address from Allison Brigati, the GSA Deputy Administrator, and four sessions on the Cloud adoption and migration for federal agencies and agency-identified concerns about moving to the Cloud.


Session 1: Cloud Adoption: The Pitfall and Pro Tips
