According to her, transitioning to cloud also requires agencies to determine which cloud service could best support their needs, to identify and partner with a contractor that works with multiple cloud providers, and to address the challenge of organizational change.

Grinnell also cited the need for organizations to know the right questions to start the move. “With every engagement, we began by asking: ‘What type of data do you have? How sensitive is it? What do you want to do with it when you get there? Who needs access to it?'"
