The NATO Communications and Information (NCI) Agency hosted on 23 June 2020 a virtual event focused on cloud computing for leaders within NATO.
Agency leaders opened the event by highlighting some of the ways cloud is already used successfully in NATO, while also pointing out opportunities for further implementation. Several industry representatives then briefed the participants, and answered questions. With this event the NCI Agency aimed to drive forward NATO's adoption of cloud technologies, a key element of NATO's digital transformation.
"We already have a cloud-first strategy in NATO. Now we need to live it and adopt it," said NCI Agency General Manager Kevin J Scheid. "It's time to adopt and stop admiring the problem."
