This IDC Perspective covers the 2018 Amazon Web Services (AWS) Public Sector Summit in Washington D.C. AWS announced support for a 21st century workforce skilled in cloud technology, geographic expansion of AWS GovCloud (US), and the availability of VMware Cloud on AWS GovCloud (US). Several agencies, such as the SEC and CIA, highlighted outcomes achieved by deploying AWS solutions for digital transformation.

"Public sector customers are leveraging human capital, creating agile processes, and achieving outcomes through deploying compute and analytics services in AWS," says Adelaide O'Brien, research director, IDC Government Insights. "In addition, AWS is enabling access to data and analytics that is efficient and effective for public sector organizations," she adds.
