Lockheed Martin announced this week its collaboration with industry and academia on the TechAmerica Foundation Cloud2 Commission Recommendations Report outlining a cloud computing adoption plan for the federal government.
According to Lockheed Martin, the company worked with 70 other commissioners over a period of three months and collaborated on four areas of the report pertaining to trust, transformation, transparency and transnational data flow. The TechAmerica Foundation Report from the Commission on the Leadership Opportunity in U.S. Deployment of the Cloud2 illustrates a path and guidance for next steps to move the U.S. government to the cloud and to keep the nation at the forefront of innovation.
“While Lockheed Martin’s key areas of focus in the report pertained to cybersecurity innovation and acquisition, all areas were of equal importance as they address the affordability and security needs of our customers at a time when cloud computing holds great promise,” commented Rick Johnson, vice president and chief technology officer for Lockheed Martin’s Information Systems & Global Solutions division.
The report included detailed recommendations for how government should deploy cloud technologies and address policies that might affect U.S. leadership of the cloud in the commercial space.
