The US federal government has been revealed to be the latest fan of cloud computing, as it is increasingly taking up the technology.
Chief technology officer for Microsoft's federal business Susie Adams is quoted by PC Advisor as suggesting there has been progress in this area for the national authority.
"We've seen movement both in private cloud and public cloud," she confirmed, adding to the opinions expressed by a panel of industry executives in a recent conference.
It is believed that the demand for cloud systems among US government departments follows an order from the White House, which has instructed all bodies to prioritise cloud applications when possible.
And it is not only in the US that the cloud is taking over, with Sachin Choughule, director of Indian computer-aided design specialist DesignTech Systems, using a piece for IT News Online to express his belief the system is the next big thing in the technology market.
