December 21, 2023 One of my goals in “Federal Tech Podcast” is to let federal leaders get an idea of what new companies and ideas are available to help them reach their goals.
Well, everybody knows Google. This is an interview with Leigh Palmer from Google to bring to light some unknown areas of Google.
Leigh provides Google’s perspective on major cloud issues, like defining “cloud native” and giving her opinion on the hybrid cloud. She thinks that federal leaders should look at the success Google has had with commercial organizations.
To accommodate that knowledge transfer, Google Public Sector was launched in 2022. It has gotten so popular that they now have an annual conference dedicated to the federal government called the Google Public Sector Conference.
At the last conference, a couple of innovations were expanded upon. During the interview, Leigh Palmer details some of the advantages of what is called Codey. Finally, you can evaluate code with the assurance of a company the size of Google standing behind it.
Recently, we have seen the OMB provide a FedRAMP draft memo seeking comments on changes to the venerable FedRAMP. We all know that FedRAMP was released ten years ago; many do not realize that this is the first change. Some of the recommendations include guidance on cloud deployments as well as a suggestion to move away from dedicated clouds.
Leigh has been involved in helping federal agencies reach goals for decades. Listen to learn how agile and innovative a big company like Google can be.
