With Kundra’s Departure, Hope Wanes for Federal Cloud AdoptionJune 21, 2011 No Comments
Federal CIO Vivek Kundra has been all about IT reform for the federal government, and he placed big bets that cloud computing is the way to go. He pushed for open government, cloud computing, data center consolidation, rigorous project management, and better customer service.
However, Kundra has announced that he will leave his position in August, after a two-and-a-half-year stint. This move has many people asking if the government’s move to cloud computing will come to a halt. Living in Washington, D.C., I get a front-row view of the government’s use of this technology, and it’s a bit like watching five-year-olds play soccer: There is a lot of movement, but not much gets done.Featured Blogs, News
