Governing in the Cloud: Ready for Takeoff?

February 17, 2015 by Bonnie D. Graham 0

The buzz: Government.

Consumers and companies are embracing the cloud to handle their data and transactions. Government IT managers are just as eager to leverage the cloud’s cost and management benefits, plus its opportunities to cultivate growth.

But their concerns about data vulnerability– from citizens’ privacy to regional and national security interests – are more intense.

How can governments balance cloud benefits with security imperatives?

The experts speak.

Shawn P. McCarthy, IDC Government Insights: “Technology is the campfire around which we tell our stories.” (Laurie Anderson)

Carmen Krueger, SAP National Security and Services: “’Carpe Nubis Diem’  – loosely translated, Seize the Cloudy Day.”

Liz McGowan, SAP Global Public Services Industries: “Just when we think we have a system, …the system collapses. Just when we know our way around, we get lost. Just when we think we know what’s coming next, everything changes.” (Anthony Doerr, Four Seasons in Rome: On Twins, Insomnia, and the Biggest Funeral in the History of the World)
