Cloud computing undeniably introduces management challenges to an organization. Rather than problems however, management should see them as opportunities.
Despite its possible security and privacy risks, cloud computing – has six main benefits that the public sector and government IT organizations are certain to want to take advantage of:
· Reduced Cost: Cloud technology is paid incrementally, saving organizations money.
· Increased Storage: Organizations can store more data than on private computer systems.
· Highly Automated: No longer do IT personnel need to worry about keeping software up to date.
· Flexibility: Cloud computing offers much more flexibility than past computing methods.
· More Mobility: Employees can access information wherever they are, rather than having to remain at their desks.
· Allows IT to Shift Focus: No longer having to worry about constant server updates and other computing issues, government organizations will be free to concentrate on innovation.
