Governments can better the efficiency and reliability of their systems by adopting the cloud. They need to confront the challenges of their economic state, as well as deliver core services to their citizens. What sort of tests do the government face, and how does cloud computing solve it?
According to the United Nations, over half the global population lives in urban areas, and city planning officials are faced with critical decisions of how to deal with these swelling city populations. Countries such as China and India are expected to surge in urbanization.
Rapid urbanization is growing faster than governments can catch up. With rapid urbanization comes the greater need to keep track of all resources, employees, and an increase in infrastructure. Governments need a place to store the rapidly expanding data as well. Cloud is the answer to rapid urbanization. It can provide the reliability that the government needs, as well as elastic capacity that can accommodate rapid growth.
With multiple regions in the world either facing financial crises or reeling under economic downturns and low GDP growth, governments are under increasing pressure to deliver their services within ever-tighter budgets and resources.
Governments need to be able to minimize costs in order to budget for other resources. With switching to a cloud solution like WatServ’s, infrastructure costs are reduced by 30% (according to a former US CIO). In India, the UIDAI has experienced recognized significant savings for the government. By adopting the cloud, it relieves pressure and gives the government opportunity to spend more time on priority issues.
One of the sore points of information technology advancement for several organisations, including government agencies, is that due to the shortening upgrade cycles and constant launch of new products and technologies, there is a great risk of technology getting obsolete sooner rather than later.
Staying up to date with technology is not a problem when it comes to the cloud. We take care in having the most cutting edge technology. This means that governments don’t have to worry about upgrading too often or not upgrading enough, or about technology that breaks down.
Cloud computing has some great advantages; it provides easy set up & maintenance, increases cost savings, and is always up to date. WatServ has some great options to keep your organization up to date.
