Global - Cloud Computing for Government and Business


Archived report. Cloud computing is a vehicle that will allow for government and business transformation. It is especially important for governments, in particular, to abandon silo thinking – in other words, if governments are serious about adopting cloud computing, they will first have to address the ingrained silo-based systems that are in operation within the bureaucracy, where different government agencies and departments have their own solutions and infrastructure.

This comes back to the same principles that BuddeComm has been addressing for many years in relation to national broadband infrastructure, which, like cloud computing, is a shared environment.

This report explores some of the considerations governments and businesses should consider when embarking on a cloud computing strategy.

Latest developments:

There is a vast difference between, consumer-grade cloud computing and enterprise-grade cloud computing. For the enterprise and government markets, which will initiate the major chunk of cloud computing activities, the road is still ahead and security is a key issue.
