Promoting understanding of cloud computing services for seamless digital services to citizens, and improving efficiency and accountability through a system of participative governance
New Delhi, September 5, 2017 – BSA | The Software Alliance today will hold a conference, “BSA Cloud Computing Roundtable: Successes and Policy Challenges,” to promote understanding of global best practices around public and private partnerships and cloud service deployment.
The roundtable will bring together technical experts and representatives from the industry, trade associations, civil society, and academia with an aim to align business, technical, and policy discussions on cloud adoption and encourage the development of India’s digital infrastructure.
The first session of the roundtable focuses on sharing examples of cloud use by governments around the world and India with an aim to understand the merits and learnings from those respective examples, while the second session covers challenges and concerns in terms of cloud related policies from a forward-looking perspective.
Around the world, governments are steadily realizing the value proposition of taking a cloud computing approach to deliver public services. Utilizing cloud computing technologies can allow organizations to reduce their information technology spending, whilst harnessing networking innovations to seamlessly offer efficient, accountable, and effective governance.
“BSA is committed to contributing to initiatives that advance cloud computing in India,” said Jared Ragland, Senior Director, Policy – APAC. “We hope this event will encourage a constructive dialog around implementing a transparent and predictable policy environment which is essential for businesses, consumers, and the public sector to leverage the full benefits of cloud computing and partake in the growing digital economy.”
