Two announcements in the last week from Google focusing on the Public Sector.
The first being that Google is engaged with the US Federal Government to create a secure Government Cloud. That is, all the Google services, but secured out to the Federal Government alone.
At a recent Longhaus Hypothetical “Government with its Head in the Cloud“, Local (Australian) Government organisations have said that a similar approach would be needed for any significant uptake by Australian Government bodies. I’m sure they will be watching the US Feds closely as they delve into this initiative.
Both a serious play at the, Federal in particular, Governments in the US and Australia, and I assume other countries as well.
