Overview

A Five Step Process to Evaluate, Design and Implement A Robust Cloud Solution The Essential Desk Reference and Guide for Managers

The United States Government is the world’s largest consumer of information technology, spending over $76 billion annually on more than 10,000 different systems. Fragmentation of systems, poor project execution, and the legacy technology in the federal government have presented barriers to achieving the productivity and performance gains found when technology is deployed effectively in the private sector. All that is about to change as the Obama Administration obliges federal departments to look to Cloud Computing to cut costs and solve many of the problems that have plagued IT deployment for decades. How do federal IT managers and those controlling the budgets go about deciding what is best for them? The answer is GovCloud: Cloud Computing for the Business of Government, a new book written by Kevin Jackson, an acknowledged international expert in this arena. With writer Don Philpott, he has created an easy to understand five-step process that explains what Cloud Computing is all about and what the best options are to meet your particular needs. It discusses, in detail, all the latest developments in this area – from administration requirements to the search for industry-wide standards. The book describes the key characteristics of Cloud Computing and various deployment and delivery models. It contains case studies and best practices, how to set and meet goals, how to implement and use Cloud Computing and how to make sure it is working. It is packed with practical tips, checklists and unique templates that can be used to design and implement Cloud Computing to meet agency-specific needs. There is also a detailed glossary for those not familiar with Cloud Computing terms. For more details, visit www.GTIBookstore.com
