Nordic Public Sector Cloud Computing – a discussion paper
Responsible organisation
2012 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Cloud computing is widely recognised as a mean for bringing cost savings and better utilisation of resources to the IT departments and their limited budgets. Cloud computing, where IT is delivered as an on-demand pay-per-use service, is rapidly evolving from a hype to a serious alternative to traditional IT procurement. This development is vastly driven by big international players. If the Nordic region is to influence and gain from this development it is essential that the Nordic governments act now. This report sets the scene for a common understanding of the notion of cloud computing across the Nordic region. The report offers a list of recommendations for key action points where cooperation across the Nordic region will be beneficial in order to establish the Nordic region as a driving force for cloud computing in the public sector.
