Using Cloud Computing to Build Next-Generation Government Services


As Congress considers approaches to transform the way the federal government acquires and utilizes information technology, the themes of "doing more for less" and "open data" have been advanced by many, including Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee Chairman Tom Carper (D-DE).

The House of Representatives is considering ways to improve the management of IT within the federal government by strengthening the role of federal agency CIOs in an effort to promote data center optimization and reduce IT costs through greater use of cloud computing, as well as other reforms.

Moreover, the White House has initiated several IT transformation initiatives over the last several years, including policies to move forward the transition to cloud computing by federal agencies, more use of open data, and overall transformation of the federal government through its Digital Government Strategy.

As policymakers strive to better leverage IT, while also cutting waste and ultimately spending less on federal IT, innovation has never been more important. The federal government will have to innovate more with less.

King & Spalding's Government Advocacy and Public Policy Partner J.C. Boggs will be kicking off a July 10
th Thought Leadership forum entitled "Using Cloud Computing to Build (Better and Cheaper) Next-Generation Government Services" hosted by the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation.

Come hear from government and industry leaders on federal IT transformation efforts as they discuss how they are innovating and how their lessons learned can be applied to the legislative, policy and acquisition processes that shape federal IT.
