It’s true – now even the Government of India will be reaping benefits of the cloud platform.
For private sector businesses who could not decide whether to make the switch, this Govt announcement should reinstate their faith in the cloud.
Here’s a little background:
- Data security and control is the primary focus of any government body.
- One of the key concerns of migrating sensitive and critical data onto the cloud has been of giving control to a third party organisation.
- With increasing compliance and regulations, government agencies have been reluctant to move their data to the cloud.
Thankfully, the needle has moved in favor of the cloud.
The Maharashtra Government recently unveiled a public cloud policy instructing all its departments to shift their data to the cloud.
This will enable public institutions like Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs), Govt Statutory Bodies and Nationalized Banks to take advantage of the benefits cloud technologies has to offer.
