GovCloudPH goes to Mindanao

June 13th, 2017

Government agencies in Mindanao will soon get their much-awaited invitation to the cloud as the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) and Vibal Group gear up to host a series of onboarding orientations in Davao City and Cagayan de Oro this June.

The Government Cloud or GovCloudPH caravan will introduce the numerous benefits of migrating ICT operations into the national cloud to agencies and government offices previously untapped.

The orientations will be held at Pinnacle Hotel in Davao City on June 15 to 16 and at Malberry Suites in Cagayan de Oro on June 19. These events are in line with DICT’s promotion of the Cloud First Policy and the GovCloudPH project.

Launched on March 28, 2017, GovCloudPH is DICT’s first signature project, which aims to reduce the cost of technology solutions and improve the overall operational efficiency of the government. Pursuant to DICT’s Circular No. 2017-002, state departments, offices, and agencies are encouraged to adopt the Cloud First Policy and take advantage of scalable, on-demand cloud computing.

Interested government staff are encouraged to send an e-mail to Miss Gigi Garcia (gi.garcia@dict.gov.ph).
