Cloud2: Transforming Government Technology

Recently, the White House formed a commission to report on the state of cloud technology. With the highest level of government calling, 71 industry experts from both business and academia contributed to the findings. The result was a 30 page report entitled. “Cloud First, Cloud Fast: Recommendations for Innovation, Leadership and Job Creation.” A Buyer’s Guide was also produced.

The purpose of the study was twofold, cloud adoption for the government while promoting commercial potential. There were four key findings around trust, transformation, transparency and transitional data flows.

On October 4, 2011 at 1:00 PM Eastern Harris Corp. will presented a webcast featuring the study’s Commissioner, Wyatt Starnes, Vice President of Advanced Concepts for Harris Cyber Integrated Solutions. He will present the key findings, topics and recommendations. Join us for a true thought leadership event. Click here to see the webcast.

  1. The government using cloud? I don't see why it's a bad idea at all. It makes things more efficient and fast, as well as reduces red tape. I can't wait to get my hands on the full report. I just hope they've also covered security, one of the major concerns I do have about cloud.
