Here’s a preview of what five-time Wash100 Award winner Rick Wagner had to say about the company’s Microsoft’s Azure Government Cloud:
Rick Wagner: “I think that the term mission cloud is really important. I want to make sure that people understand that the investments we’re making are geared towards that focus on the mission. How do we drive improved outcomes for our customers?
When I talk with CEOs, I tell them that I want to give them secure collaboration and do that in a way that helps them to manage their enterprise. How do we make that more cost-effective for them? Because what I’d really like to see is for the government to start to take advantage of some of these mission-oriented cloud capabilities that are available.”
