CLOUD COMPUTING

Future cloud: Just computing

Three years from now, federal managers won’t have debates about the benefits of cloud computing because most will assume that services are being delivered via some type of cloud infrastructure, GCN is reporting.

Instead, they will be talking about big data; how they can get better access to data and ask more intelligent questions of the data, says Shawn Kingsberry, CIO of the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board.

The current on-demand computing model is considered a new way of providing the services that IT departments have been delivering over the past 30 years. But, “when you start to look three years forward, I don’t think we are going to be talking about it because there is going to be an expectation that we are already leveraging it,” Kingsberry said.
