Information technology approaches in the public sector are changing fast. More enterprise applications are going to the cloud. Agencies are creating hybrid infrastructures consisting of their own data center, shared tenancy clouds, and depending on the application and data involved, government-specific clouds. These efforts have multiple goals – lowering operations and maintenance costs, having faster access to the latest technology, assuring service levels and improving cybersecurity. But hybrid also brings challenges, including greater complexity, more service level agreements to juggle, and more demand for both physical and logical security.
