The original article is published on the Microsoft Tech Community SharePoint Blog.

Step into the voting booth. This episode brings all the insights on the Government Community Cloud (GCC) offerings in Office 365 – without a single chad left hanging.

Chris and I sat with three Office 365 experts who specialize in working with government agencies, to help guide their transformation – both how they work together internally and how they connect with the public sectors they serve.

In this episode, we chat with John Peluso (CTO – Public Sector; AvePoint), Adam Levithan (Digital Product Manager; Withum) and Richard Toland (Principal Architect; Perpetual Reality), across a number of topics including their engaging government customer stories, how Office 365 supports across various scenarios, the challenges of change management, and their most important tips they wish to share with every government customer/prospect.

And a most special treat (from my very biased perspective): my mom, Mary Kashman, snuck into Microsoft Studios with Chris and I and gave us a most elegant read of this episode’s intro with a special story to kick things off; warms my heart. Love you, mom.
