U.S. government sets up online ‘app store’

I, for one, am looking forward to see how this begins to play out. Irrespective if one is a fan of “cloud computing” or not, I think we can all agree that it make sense for at least components of our governmental bureaucracies to start leveraging the economies of scale that are now available. I have invested heavily, in terms of research and actual development, in modern cloud development and believe the individual components have sufficiently matured to make this a good time for any business to seriously consider using these types of resources.

In my article “The Cloud: A Great Place for Enterprise E-mail” — published by Cloud Computing Journal in August ( — I contend the benefits of judicious use of cloud computing far outweigh any real, or perceived, risk.
