“Federal policy-makers are under mounting pressure to cut costs. The Administration has identified two major initiatives—data center consolidation and cloud-computing—that promise to improve government services and save taxpayers billions of dollars,” said DC4 Coalition Executive Director David Taylor.
“While these initiatives enjoy broad support within the tech community, Congress cut requested funding in FY 2012. Part of their justification for doing so has been concern that implementation of these initiatives may fall short of the Administration’s performance and budgetary objectives. The DC4 Coalition will work with the Administration and Congress to address those concerns and improve the prospects that agency data center consolidation and cloud transition activities move forward.”
