Cloud Computing: Customers and Government

The US Government has a large stake in the field of cloud computing and continues to seek out new solutions for operationalizing the cloud computing model in order to serve the citizenry. Other governments have also seen the value in cloud computing and the economic, technological and societal benefit that cloud computing brings to the table. Debates and challenges still persist for cloud customers around the procurement, contracting and the convergence of technological capability and policy issues. This topic will illustrate some these challenges and successes of creative outcomes in various government agencies and customers. 
Other topics include:
  • Current State of Cloud Computing Standards
  • Progress on the NIST SP500 293: 10 High Level Requirements for Cloud Adoption
  • Cloud Forensics
The agenda will be posted online soon.
