#AzureGov Meetup Recap: IoT Strategies For Government

The rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) is certainly exciting for government agencies, but it also brings many challenges (namely security and devising a clear strategy for integrating a still-evolving technology).

Last night’s #AzureGov meetup was a great evening of networking, demos, use cases and best practices for government agencies looking to quickly and securely deploy IoT.

Last night featured two speakers from Docker Public SectorChris Cyrus, vice president, and Andrew Weiss, lead engineer  –  who joined the Microsoft Azure Government team to discuss how containers are changing the way software is built and procured in government. They presented demos of Docker Containers deploying IoT in the cloud and gave insights into best practices and customer use cases for government IoT.
