At a recent panel discussion, technology leaders in the US federal government discussed their experiences in overseeing cloud migration for some of the largest agencies and departments in the nation. In the session, titled "The cloud transforming everything," these CIOs and CTOs shared their hard-won wisdom about how to overcome concerns and objections; how to make a business-needs case for cloud migration; how to attract the right workforce; and how to develop a set of strategies for gradual, efficient cloud migration in an environment known for its resistance to change. What follows is an edited version of this discussion, led by Wayne Bobby, Infor’s vice president, US Federal.
