Cloud computing in the Federal government is getting a shot in the arm from Apps.gov, a new web site that we learned about last week on the program from Federal CIO Vivek Kundra.
NASA CIO Linda Cureton tells FederalNewsRadio that the cloud platform moved quickly out of the pilot stage and into a full productions stage. Cureton also is reviewing the plans for NASA's multi-billion dollar IT support services consolidation contract, called I3P. She says a new schedule could be released as early as next week.
Mark Forman, a partner with KPMG and former Administrator for E-Government and Information Technology at the Office of Management and Budget, explains.
