Government Session at Cloud Computing Expo

Cloud computing has captured the attention of many government IT decision makers

Earlier this week I announced that I will be presenting at SYS-CON's 2nd International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo in New York City this coming March 30-April 1, 2009. During the Cloud & the Government Session at Cloud Computing Expo I will discuss the results of a new survey on cloud computing in the Federal government.

Federal government organizations have typically been viewed as cautious adopters of new technologies. However, as expressed by now President Obama's transition team, cloud computing has captured the attention of many government IT decision makers. The U.S. Defense Department’s Defense Information System Agency is, in fact, already fielding a cloud computing infrastructure. In October 2008, through on-line surveys and in-depth interviews, customer requirements and concerns were gathered in order to shed light on current cloud computing offerings targeted for government customer. In February 2009, the survey will be repeated in order to gauge how trends in this market segment have changed.

I look forward to your participation in the new survey and welcome you views and comments on the Obama administration's views on the importance of cloud computing to government transparency.
