Australian Government Keeps One Eye On The Cloud Future

Posted on

There’s no denying the juggernaut that is Cloud Computing. In September 2011, the Australian government responded to the rapidly growing industry by releasing a Cloud Strategy document to the public that indicates the cloud future is bright.

The government report concludes:

“The rapid growth in the availability of cloud services…presents opportunities and challenges to all levels of government in Australia.”

And, keeping in mind future government implementation of cloud technologies, they report stated that, “agencies may choose cloud-based services where they demonstrate value for money and adequate security.”

This, again, reinforces several important considerations on the cloud:

Every business and agency—whether governmental or startup—needs to consider a cloud strategy
Lay out your options, talk to your IT manager and talk to the experts. Know how your business is moving forward.

Security is paramount for every cloud strategy
Public, shared clouds come with inherent risk and inefficiencies. Using a private cloud is the most secure and reliable way to run your business.

Tailored solutions work best
There’s no magic bullet in cloud strategies—bundled packages and generic offerings are never going to work for your business. A cloud strategy should be as bespoke as a suit—sit down with an expert, and tailor the perfect solution for you.

Every business, big or small, must consider their options in the cloud, or risk being left behind. Call our Melbourne offices at Cloud Solutions Group on +61 3 9863 7785 and future-proof your business.
