Innovative Approaches: Simplifying Data Center Management

Outsourcing your agency’s data centers is increasingly innovative and appealing, and the pressure to move is mounting. Cloud based services are flexible, efficient, cost-effective, and scalable. They leverage sophisticated automation, storage, and security tools – and promise enhanced reliability, improved service delivery and reduced burden on limited IT staff and resources. But is it all too good to be true? How do you convince entrenched interests inside your agency that outsourcing really works? Which applications and data sets are best suited to outsourcing? What are the security considerations and risks? How are outsourced platforms helping to accelerate the transformation to a more agile government?
