Efficient procurement and industry policy coalesce in the cloud
Government’s efficiency objectives are often at odds with its industry development policy – to spend less on the one hand to cut costs, but spend more on the other to create local jobs. Cloud computing may allow both objectives to be achieved, but only if governments are thinking ahead. Conversely, inattention could lead to both lost efficiency opportunities and lasting damage to the local IT industry.
