Vivek Kundra Announces Federal Cloud Computing Initiative at NASA’s Ames Research Center

Federal CIO Vivek Kundra announced a new government cloud computing initiative at NASA’s Ames Research Center on Sept. 15, 2009.  The new Apps.gov platform will serve as an online storefront for federal agencies to browse and purchase cloud-based software and IT services, and CIO Kundra predicted it would significantly lower overhead and increase innovation.

CIO Kundra remarked, “This technology supports every mission our government performs— from defending our borders to protecting the environment.  IT is essential for the government to do its work, and it is essential that we have access to the latest and most innovative technologies.”
