PALO ALTO, Calif., June 13 — Today eGovernment promises a means for cost effectively delivering information and enabling transactions among the citizens residing within a local geography, as well as the different governmental groups supporting them. However, the role of eGovernment has been limited by the inherent cost and complexity of integrating and managing traditional server-based systems. To address this challenge, WSO2 has published a new white paper on how government agencies can harness the cloud to radically scale the delivery of services while minimizing the expenses related to IT infrastructure, application development and deployment, and operations.
Representing a market that Forester Research expects to top $241 billion by 2020, cloud computing shatters the traditional server-based hosting metaphor. The new WSO2 white paper, "Moving eGovernment to the Cloud," reviews how a cloud-based deployment model provides scalable and secure access for users in an easy to design and maintain system.
The paper presents an architectural approach for maintaining a central platform-as-a-service (PaaS) working in concert with local private cloud platforms to efficiently leverage computing resources across platforms and locations — while ensuring proper governance. Significantly, this architectural model works equally well in the government and in the private sector among enterprises with multiple locations. The document also reviews how the award-winning WSO2 Stratos cloud middleware platform supports this approach.
