INSA Study on Cloud Computing in the Intelligence Community: Rollout 13 March 2012 | SYS-CON MEDIA

(Originally posted by Bob Gourley at CTOvision)

INSA Study on Cloud Computing in the Intelligence Community: Rollout 13 March 2012 | SYS-CON MEDIA        Over the last year I’ve had the pleasure of serving with a team of volunteers from the Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA) as we dove deep into topics associated with Cloud Computing and the Intelligence Community. National security technologists have long been thought leaders when it comes to adopting advanced technology to serve important missions and have long been leveraging the emerging benefits of cloud computing and mission focused applications like Big Data. Our study sought to learn lessons from these pioneers in the IC and we also sought to provide useful information to the government from our interactions with industry. Frankly this last piece was quite a challenge, since the technologists working this issue in government are very well plugged-in to the developments in industry in this cloud computing space.  However, in the end, we believe we produce something that will help further the dialog on this interesting topic.
         The paper was a collaboration, but a team of key leaders and subject matter experts rose to the top and are deserving of special note. One is Kevin Jackson, a highly regarded cloud computing thought leader, author, and industry executive with extensive experience in delivering world class solutions. Having the benefits of Kevin’s deep background in this topic gave us a firm footing in reality and ensured our conclusions were as relevant as possible. John Totah, a renowned technologist who has a proven capacity to understand any enterprise technology, led a team of professionals who interviewed industry thought leaders from around the country, ensuring our study was founded in what is now and what is known to be coming from the tech sector in this cloud computing domain.  Maureen McGovern, a highly respected leader and enterprise strategist, led teams of interviewers who interfaced directly with the most senior leaders in the IC. Together with a large cadre of other INSA volunteers, the team produced a short document which offers food for thought we believe will be of use in and out of the Intelligence Community.
