Hitachi Vantara Federal, along with AWS, Alfresco, and our valued partner ThunderCat Technology, sponsored MeriTalk’s survey of 2019 AWS Public Sector Summit participants to understand how IT managers assess the value of their current data centers, what factors they consider when moving a data center, and the most common excuses they hear for keeping outdated data centers open. We explored motivations, hesitations, and other perspectives around moving to cloud and identified what costs, both actual and theoretical, are factored into the decision-making process.
