September 12, 2011
How can agency managers set realistic expectations within their organizations before moving to cloud-based services?
"My suggestion is plan, plan, plan for the cloud," Wolf Tombe, chief technology officer within the Customs and Border Protection's Office of Information Technology, told attendees at a cloud computing conference.
"It is incredibly important to get past the hype about the cloud," Tombe said during a session at the Cloud and Virtualization Conference and Expo Sept. 9 in Washington, D.C. The conference was sponsored by 1105 Media Inc., parent company of Government Computer News.
Agency managers have to do their homework and bring themselves up to speed with which cloud capabilities will realistically work within their organizations, Tombe said.
