Cloud computing is the foundation for improving the flexibility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness of IT operations and services.
It’s not a change in technology—it’s a change in mentality. In the traditional approach, agencies have bought and managed systems that, however effective in the beginning, eventually fail to keep up with changing requirements and require significant new hardware and software investments. The cloud provides another path. Rather than buying a system, an organization buys a service—with the ability to extend or adapt those services as requirements evolve.
