The DoD continues to strive to improve the quality and value of the capability delivered to the warfighter. The Cloud Services Workshop is designed to support Cross-Functional, In-tact Teams who are looking for assistance and guidance with understanding and developing operational plans for migration to a secure cloud environment. This workshop provides guidance to assist with identification of and planning for migration of systems and applications to a secure cloud environment.

This workshop is cloud service provider agnostic (i.e., can be applied to any commercial or federally provided “Cloud” offering). The workshop focuses on issues related to the DoD implementing a Cloud Solution. Including a review of the DoD Cloud Strategy, a case study on cloud application rationalization, a review of the concepts of Cloud Native Computing and cloud migration, TCO analysis, review of cloud security requirements, review of requirements for a Cloud ATO, issues and trends in contracting, and the detailed pricing of a cloud solution. The workshop is currently held as a virtual offering, with a mix of instructor led presentation, and student group exercises.

The requesting agency will be actively engaged to tailor the workshop content in order to meet their needs and will be afforded the opportunity to consider follow-on consulting to further mature their transformation to the cloud.
