Gov 2.0: Cloud Computing As Government Panacea

Federal CIO Vivek Kundra has made it known that he’s a proponent of the cloud model

The importance of cloud computing was a significant theme at this week’s  Government 2.0 Summitt

Two of the most influential people in the cloud computing market — Amazon CTO Werner Vogels and General Services Administration CIO Casey Coleman — talked today at the Gov 2.0 Summit about cloud computing’s high potential as a cheaper, better way of delivering IT resources. Such enthusiasm, however, is tempered with lingering questions about security, interoperability, and organizational barriers.

Coleman is a force in cloud computing because GSA, as an IT service provider to other government agencies, wields considerable buying power. Federal CIO Vivek Kundra has made it known that he’s a proponent of the cloud model, which means GSA and other government agencies have a green light to pursue the cloud, and they seem to be doing just that.  (Information Week)
