GovCloud: Cloud Computing for the Business of Government

GovCloud: Cloud Computing for the Business of Government

GovCloud: Cloud Computing for the Business of Government is the Essential Desk Reference and Guide for Managers The United States Government. As the world’s largest consumer of information technology, it spends 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 L. 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 a more detailed resource, try “Architecting Cloud Computing Solutions”.

Thanks. I just updated to post in order to clarify data origin. The Price-Performance score is a blend of technical performance (CloudSpec Score) obtained from Cloud Spectator and use case performance obtained from Gartner. I then normalized the values using equal weight. In the chart, the higher the value on the vertical axis, the better. Security score was obtained from Gartner. The further to the right on the horizontal axis, the better.

Very interesting take on the two analyses, Kevin!

Just out of curiosity, which price/performance values did you use from the Cloud Spectator report? The system performance?

The information here is well-illustrated, and simplifies a range of concerns brought up in the cloud industry. Thanks for the post, and I look forward to seeing more information like this in the future.
