For its federal IT strategy, the Trump administration is continuing the emphasis for the use of cloud computing as established during the previous administration. But cloud is a moving target for federal agencies.

The number of cloud service providers who have received approval under the Federal Risk Authorization and Management Program (FedRAMP) is growing—86 have received approval and another 69 are in process.

And FedRAMP itself has evolved to accommodate a wider range of security requirements including establishing a FISMA high baseline.

Now at the same time, agencies are expanding the types of workloads they feel confident in moving to the cloud. Agencies are rationalizing and modernizing applications as the effort to move off legacy IT continues to gain momentum.

With all this activity, agencies are trying to understand what makes sense for their mission needs.

A GSA best practices guide for hybrid cloud highlighted several considerations as agencies implement these services. GSA says integration of multiple cloud environments, composition, which provides the flexibility of the hybrid cloud model, and organization impact, which helps decide type of system or data that makes the most sense, are key ingredients to a successful approach.

At the same time, agencies will not be able to give up some on-premise data center storage and processing power.

This is creating a dual set-up that some are calling hybrid IT. This concept brings together public and private sector expertise and cloud services while potentially saving agencies money and improving their effectiveness.

This webinar will explore how agencies can find success and prosper in this new hybrid IT model.
