Cloud Computing, the difficulties that it is not impossible in Indonesia

Cloud computing is Internet-based computing, whereby shared servers provide resources, software, and data to computers and other devices on demand, as with the electricity grid. Cloud computing is a natural evolution of the widespread adoption of virtualization, Service-oriented architecture and utility computing.

Cloud Computing is believed to be beneficial in the government of Indonesia. However, adoption is still a big challenge.

"Every country has its own unique challenges but, in general, all governments face similar problems relating to how they spend their budgets on infrastructure and social services and citizens," said Ken Wye Saw, Vice President of Public Sector for Asia, Microsoft .

Saw said that, on one hand the government needs to adopt better public services. Because, he said, people now more vocal in demanding a public transparency, participation and accountability. In addition, he continued, threats and national security has become more complex.

Therefore, Saw saw the public sector actually have an interest in applying cloud computing. "Currently, the development of data is a major challenge for the public sector," he revealed.

Microsoft, he said, continues to garner work with governments to help understand all of this data. "Cloud became attractive proposition for the data than are sensitive because it offers unlimited processing capabilities," said Saw.

Although, Saw admitted, the government can resistant to Cloud Computing technology. "The various challenges to the cloud rotates around political issues and sovereignty rather than the technical details, but ultimately we believe the economy is too interesting for the public sector to ignore it. source : detikinet
