October 18, 2016

What do the Dutch government agency Rijkswaterstaat, the U.S.A.’s, and the Australian and UK governments have in common? They all use Cloud Foundry in their digital transformation journey! Watch these fascinating talks on how these government agencies left behind their clunky legacy technologies and learned to embrace open source as a path to digital excellence, with Cloud Foundry at the heart of it all.

1. Open As a Disruptor for Government: Liam Maxwell, UK Government

What’s the “square of despair”? National Technology Adviser Liam Maxwell explains.

2. Running Cloud Foundry in a Compliance and Security Focused Environment: Diego Lapiduz and Bret A. Mogilefsky, 18F

What is 18F anyway? And how does it enable the US government to use Cloud Foundry to satisfy compliance and deliver daily builds? Press play and learn.

3. Delivering Simpler, Clearer, Faster Government Services with Cloud Foundry: Lindsay Holmwood, Head of Development, Australian Government Digital Transformation Office

What happens when the government reprioritizes its focus on meeting user needs and modernizing technical delivery methods? Australia faced these challenges head-on.

4. Bringing VMware Cloud Foundry for Dutch Government–A Tale of People, Process and Technology: Bas van Essen, Dutch Government Agency Rijkswaterstaat

How did the Dutch government streamline operations and accelerate its digital transformation while addressing the needs of its citizens? Bas van Essen explains their multi-prong approach.

As more of the world’s inhabitants get online and expect to be able to easily access their local and federal governments on the internet, countries around the world must ensure their web presences exist, are easy to navigate and meet the needs of users. The United States, the UK, the Netherlands and Australia have raised the bar for other governments’ digital transformations, thanks to their reconfiguration of priorities and their implementation of agile technologies like Cloud Foundry. Who else will rise to the challenge?
