When the Office of the Federal Chief Information Officer (OFCIO) replaced the Cloud First policy in 2019 with the more long-term, forward-looking, and practicality-driven Cloud Smart strategy, the goal was to help government agencies achieve additional savings, efficiency, and security at scale. Procurement of cloud solutions was streamlined while risk-based decision-making improved performance at all levels.
To quote Suzette Kent, Federal Chief Information Officer, “By updating an outdated policy, Cloud Smart embraces best practices from both the federal government and the private sector, ensuring agencies have capability to leverage leading solutions to better serve agency mission, drive improved citizen services and increase cyber security.”
GovDataHosting is proud to be a partner to the U.S. government, its agencies, and their supporting contractors. Our FISMA-compliant hosting and fully managed suite of services support the mission by facilitating Cloud Smart best practices. How? It all starts with our dedicated and secure data centers.
