6th #AzureGov Meetup – SaaSapalooza, Records Management, Apps.Gov

August 26, 2016

The sixth #AzureGov meetup took place on July 25th at Microsoft’s K Street office.

Like the previous meetups, this meetup also began with a  networking session.

After the  networking session Andrew Stroup, Director of Product and Technology, White House Presidential Innovation Fellows, provided insights and discussion on how the federal government is tackling the procurement of cloud technologies by building a double-sided marketplace, Apps.gov.

Apps.gov is focused on creating easier pathways for tech companies to enter the federal government market and federal employees a singular place to discover, explore and procure these products. Andrew took several questions about how products are registered with Apps.gov, the market size and how cloud solutions like AzureGov  are available on Apps.gov.

Following Andrew’s session,  Martin Heinrich, Director of Enterprise Content and Records Management, CGI, discussed CGI’s recently-launched Records Management as a Service (RMaaS) which combines the Microsoft Azure Government Cloud and OpenText’s Content Suite with CGI’s extensive consulting expertise and implementation services.

Hope you can join us for the next meeting on August 31st that will feature Open Source  in government. For more information, please visit
