Making Cloud Achievable: To Cloud or Not To Cloud – Government

February 16, 2011 No Comments

The Obama Administration has no doubts about the benefits of cloud computing. They have touted the benefits of a cloud strategy that  can deliver as a technology solution, including speed, flexibility and cost-efficiency. They know the decision to shift to a cloud platform must be approached with care.

In this webcast both major government IT professionals and leading industry analysts, will take you through the decision-making process step-by-step.

With the new directive to adopt a “Cloud First” policy, by the end of March, each agency will have to identify three “must move” services for the cloud, with the first fully transitioned by year’s end. Cloud computing promises to reduce the size and cost of data centers, provide for real-time provisioning of IT services, and pave the way for the future of federal computing. In recent months, agencies from the Department of the Navy, to Homeland Security and the State Department have all made significant inroads in the cloud. However, key questions in cloud computing have yet to be satisfactorily answered – including issues of access, management, privacy and security. In February, the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) released yet another draft guideline on security and privacy for public comment.

This editorial webcast will include a discussion on current and future applications of cloud computing:

  • How do agencies identify which programs are right for the cloud?
  • How do they decide the appropriate model?
  • What are the benefits of public vs. private cloud computing?
  • What are the specific cost savings, and how long until these are realized?
