How the Cloud Is Transforming the Public Sector

The cloud is radically transforming the way that organizations look at IT infrastructure. Microsoft and Amazon have cemented themselves as two of the most prominent players in this industry. There is also HP Inc. and its ability to provide servers and other IT infrastructure that can be used in cloud environments.

What Is the Cloud?

The cloud is a new way of looking at computing and IT infrastructure. It allows you to access resources and data from anywhere with an internet connection. It has made IT infrastructure a service that is billable down to the second. You can access the latest Intel processors and server hardware, and you only need to pay for the resources you use.[Text Wrapping Break][Text Wrapping Break]The cloud also offers a lot of new software that abstracts the computing process to another level. Organizations essentially never need to think about the underlying hardware anymore. You can build your software on robust IT infrastructure that will rarely fail.

The Cloud Is Saving Money on Hardware

For the public sector, the cloud has meant access to the latest hardware without ever having to pay for it. Public sector organizations now have the ability to perform their tasks without having a massive IT department. They only need a few cloud engineers to ensure that they can work on the platform.[Text Wrapping Break][Text Wrapping Break]There are no more hardware upgrades, and these organizations don't need to worry about data storage. Most cloud providers offer almost unlimited data storage. It means the organization has an opportunity to focus on doing its job.

It's Making Security Easier for Organizations

Since public sector organizations are moving to the cloud, it means a radical shift in how they have to look at security. Previously, there had to be at least some hardware and software-based security for a public sector's IT infrastructure. This is changing quickly with the cloud as cloud providers are good with security. It reduces the costs and complexity of deploying software for government agencies and other public sector organizations.


The cloud has brought a significant number of benefits to the public sector. As the reliance on technology grows, the cloud will become a mainstay in how public sector organizations consume IT services. It will also enable public sector organizations to do more with fewer resources being allocated to their IT department.
