Canberra's belated cloud embrace

The National Cloud Computing Strategy isn't quite “cloud first” but still a much-needed step in the right direction.

The Australian government has finally embraced cloud services as a critical element of the digital economy by releasing a National Cloud Computing Strategy. While not quite “cloud first”, the strategy creates an explicit requirement for agencies to consider cloud services for new ICT procurements, test and development activity, and to migrate existing websites to cloud services at natural refresh points. When combined with a range of other measures, this represents a significant step forward in the modernisation of the government’s thinking and approach to ICT industry development and to its own procurement and use of ICT.
