Facing tighter budgets and increased demands for transparency, worker flexibility and customer service, many states and local agencies are moving government IT functions to the cloud. Exactly how to do that will be the focus of a webinar on Oct. 11, 2011, during the State & Local Government Summit.

Several experts from Microsoft's State & Local Government team will be presenting a session titled, “Soup to Nuts: Harnessing the Complete Power of the Public Cloud.” During the 45-minute webinar, they will explain how agencies can use the cloud to offer interactive citizen portals, increase collaboration across organizations, reduce government IT costs, and more.

The webinar, which will be held from 11:15 to 12:15 p.m. EST on Oct. 11, is part of the State & Local Government Summit, a one-day online conference that includes six education sessions and a virtual exhibit hall.
