The Cloudy Future Of Government IT: Cloud Computing and The Public Sector around The World

This article examines the importance of cloud computing and non-military uses of cloud computing in governments across the globe, from the United States to Europe and Asia.

The paper then looks at the resource – people and computing – issues involved in cloud computing. The author then presents his six-step “Cloud Migration Strategy” for governmental agencies to shift to cloud computing. Finally, the author looks “beyond the horizon” to the implications for public sector organizations and the information technology community as the cloud computing revolution progresses.
