Major players zero in on cloud computing marketMay 2, 2011 No Comments

The federal government has adopted a “cloud-first” policy that makes cloud, or Web-based computing, the default choice and has required agencies to move at least three services to the cloud within an 18-month period. The policy announcements have stoked a growing industry of companies — both those better known for commercial work and traditional contractors — hoping to play a part in the shifts.
