"25 Point Implementation Plan To Reform Federal IT," Vivek Kundra
- Economics: Cloud computing is a pay-as-you-go approach to IT, in which a low initial investment is required to begin, and additional investment is needed only as system use increases.
- Flexibility: IT departments that anticipate fluctuations in user demand no longer need to scramble for additional hardware and software. With cloud computing, they can add or subtract capacity quickly and easily.
- Speed: Cloud computing eliminates long procurement and certification processes, while providing a near-limitless selection of services.
