Public sector needs different results from cloud computing

According to ComputerWeekly.com, companies in the public sector have a different list of requirements from cloud computing from their counterparts in the private sector.

The news provider noted that public sector IT administrators are often less likely to consider new services. Oftentimes, they view such large changes as counterproductive, since they can take a long time to get off the ground. However, public sector IT can benefit greatly from the cloud by carefully analyzing vendors and making informed decisions.

Once an IT decision-maker has opted to move to the cloud, it can be even more difficult for his or her workers to get on board. According to the news provider, public sector organizations are even more cognizant of latency than those in the private sector.

Additionally, ComputerWeekly reported that many in the public sector are waiting for standards and best practices to emerge before moving IT operations to the cloud.

However, a slower move may not be the worst thing for government IT. Forbes recently reported that adopting cloud solutions more deliberately is likely to help avoid certain issues that have developed for businesses using the technology.
