Developing a cloud strategy

Canadian governments and public sector agencies across the country are driven by new economic realities to reduce deficits and debt, as well as maintain or improve customer service. What’s more, CIOs are asked to find new ways to adopt technology innovations to enhance service delivery and increase citizen and business satisfaction.
