Several sites, including Data.gov, the IT Dashboard and the FEDRamp cloud efforts, could be shut down in the next two months if the administration doesn't get more money under the E-government fund. In all, nine sites are on the list to be discontinued by July 30 if OMB doesn't find money to keep it going. Experts say OMB has several ways to keep the sites up, including pass-the-hat among agencies.

Could the National Information Exchange Model help spread semantic technology throughout government?
Nearly every President since Richard Nixon tried to revamp how the government works in one way or another, and few have found any real success. Experts say the focus should be getting Congressional buy-in first, and not promising cost savings. Four senior lawmakers ask OMB for more information on the status of the current restructuring effort.

The application of knowledge discovery within the cloud is immensely powerful, but not inbuilt. We are collectively moving past the question of "what is cloud computing", and swiftly moving towards "how does the cloud enable advanced analysis against massive volumes of data?" With industry and government leveraging multiple clouds, how do we successfully share and search large collections of data across systems, departments, and geographies? Organizations will continue to discuss and better understand the analytic power and economies of cloud computing, in the sense of data storage, sharing, and management; but we are quickly discovering that creating knowledge from data is more than just a discussion of technology. It's a discussion of what can be accomplished when massive data and cloud computing efficiencies combine to make advanced analysis and innovation possible.
