Azure Community
Description:

Interested in learning how your State and Local Government counterparts are leveraging the cloud to digitally transform the way they do business? Are you an innovator that wants to benefit from participating in a community of like-minded business and IT professionals? Government agencies provide critical services to the communities they serve, and the growing demand to do more with less available resources makes the hybrid cloud discussion more relevant than ever before. Join us every fourth week of the month to learn from Microsoft customers that have embraced technology as an innovative and transformative way to deliver government-related services to the communities they serve.

The SLG Azure Friday community is made up of Microsoft customers actively delivering services through the Microsoft Azure cloud, or seeking new ways to bring innovation to their organizations, and presentations will primarily be delivered by State and Local Government customers based on challenges and opportunities relevant to all customers across the country. The community provides a forum to present your innovative solutions, and to network with peers that are rising to the ever changing landscape of delivering government services at scale.
