9 september 2014

‘In the situation of cutting budgets on acquisition and support of information technologies the move to cloud services providing implementation of the basic functions of the authorities can become an actual alternative to public information systems requiring long individual development and introduction,’ the Head of the Directorate for Housing and Communal Services of the Analytical Center Maria Shilina believes.

This opinion Maria Shilina announced in her report “Cloud services for public sector: easier, cheaper, safer” at the conference of CNews “Cloud Technologies: Expanding Horizons”. No doubt, cloud technologies require significant methodical and organizational preparation and educating all groups of users. However, their use will allow to cut the budget costs at all levels, and to speed up introduction and ability of quick adaptation to amendment of norms and regulations, the expert said.
