Meeting of the Minds recently caught up with Iteris president and CEO Joe Bergera to discuss a cloud-first strategy for cities and the benefits, particularly during the pandemic.
As Meeting of the Minds executive director Jessie Feller Hahn writes, "Organizations, cities and companies that have replicated some of their business processes in the cloud have navigated the pandemic quite well. Some have even thrived."
"Cloud based services are agile and efficient and local government is recognizing they need to embrace and upgrade their cloud technology. Joe posits that the pandemic has demonstrated that cloud architecture is resilient, agile and even improves cybersecurity. It’s not easy to transition to the cloud but the benefits are now there for cities."
