Beyond the Current Software Thinking
Today,at the beginning of the third millennium,the discussions in the software world are about the new forms of the old things!
Your question is:
“How to use IT to improve the quality of government”
and your firm suggestion: “Cloud”.
But, the Cloud is a hype construction having Data Center as a “question mark” pillar. Data Center will always be a question mark for accessing, trusting, security, costs, etc, and some X-as-a-Service hides the complexity, not solves it.
There’s little room for Federal directive:
“To Dramatically Simplify the Complexity of IT”!!
A detailed analysis of the informational real world should be done!
