I wrote before about the time bombs that exist in the government’s cloud migration strategy. And while I was reading an article on Wired Cloudline about this very issue, those same points were running through my head.
And since the Government Accountability Office recently reported that federal agencies were struggling to meet the cloud mandate, I thought it was important to inform Wired’s readers as to the difficulties of moving legacy systems to the cloud.
So I fired off a note to the editor offering some additional opinions on the topic he was writing about. And to my surprise, he asked me to turn it into an article. This is the result.
Let me know what you think. Are there any other issues you see in the government’s cloud migration strategy?
