'Ten years ago the federal government started talking about the cloud' Vishwas Lele, AIS Click To Tweet
In the studio today, Vishwas Lele, CTO Applied Digital Services. His company is known as AIS and is a leader in helping federal agencies make the transition to the cloud in a safe manner.
Vishwas began the conversation looking backward at the initiatives of a Vivek Kundra. We all remember Vivek’s his “25 Point Implementation Plan to Reform Federal Information Technology.” Essentially, he was pushing massive federal technology to the cloud, “Cloud First.”
Some will say Vivek’s plan was, perhaps, ahead of its time. Vishwas addressed the panoply of concerns the federal government has had over the years in deploying solutions to the cloud. The discussion gave broad overviews of how much of the federal government is locked into silos and really needs leadership to head to the cloud.
Vishwas thinks the transition can, and should, take place. A quote from a technology publication was raised,”80% of public sector executives expect an increase in job satisfaction with the use of intelligent technology.” Vishwas agreed but indicated that automation should be approached in a manner that would comply with federal cybersecurity restrictions during the transfer.
