How Public Sector Organizations Can Move to Office 365

Government agencies, from the local to federal level, have had their cloud migration ambitions challenged by stringent regulations, tightening budgets and mission critical workloads.

The daunting task of data discovery, classification, clean-up and migration can pose an obstacle to agencies seeking to take advantage of all that Office 365 and cloud solutions have to offer.

Our eBook provides clear answers to the questions you’re asking:

  •  Should I explore a hybrid solution?
  •  How do I identify business requirements for my migration that balance security with usability?
  •  How can I best use the RFI process to discover what’s possible for my migration?

Whether you’re a government executive, IT professional, or program manager this guide is for you.
