While there is no shortage of challenges of cloud adoption in the public sector, it is clear that there is also tremendous room for opportunities. Public sector organizations are increasingly becoming reliant on cloud services to maintain resilient services and capabilities for their respective missions and purposes. It is paramount that organizations don’t forget the most critical piece of the puzzle along that journey, the workforce. It is key that organizations invest in their people, provide learning paths, incentives and room for growth. Whether it is upskilling existing staff, hiring new resources with key competencies, or partnering with trusted consultants and advisors who have proven themselves in this space, the workforce will be the most critical component of cloud adoption success in the public sector.
