Cloud computing has brought about a step change in the economics and sustainability of ICT enabled service provision. The government is committed to adopting cloud computing and providing computing resources to users as needed (an on-demand delivery model). By exploiting innovations in cloud computing we will transform the public sector ICT estate into one that is agile, cost effective and environmentally sustainable.
