A new FAA contract shows how much money there is in the cloud

Cloud computing is the most significant revolution in computing since the Internet. Every technology company seems to be trying to optimize their business through cloud computing. Popular products such as Adobe Photoshop and InDesign were once sold in a boxed set. Now they are exclusively marketed via the cloud.
It seems that the Federal Aviation Administration is following this trend and running its systems through the cloud. The FAA has awarded a cloud computing contract to Computer Sciences Corporation, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. The FAA is not compromising on price, with the deal valued at over $100 million and potentially reaching upwards of $1 billion over a 10-year period.
This is not just for the FAA. Although this is a major announcement, the FAA isn’t the only government agency to recognize its importance. The White House is keen to increase efficiency through cloud computing, and the Executive Branch announced that it was implementing federal cloud computing strategies in 2011.
This initiative was intended to reduce federal IT spending by nearly $80 billion to $20 billion through cloud-based technology. The government is still optimizing its IT needs and will spend $3 billion in 2014 instead of the $2.2 billion projected.
All of this is to say that the cloud is on the horizon and anyone who has any interest in basic computer training should look into it. Cloud computing training is now more important than ever with the migration of technological services into the cloud. New Horizons Computer Learning Centers is here to help.
