Cloud and the workplace
The more cloud computing matures, the more the conversations seems to focus on rethinking business processes supported by IT as a Service. What's interesting about GSA's story is the degree to which GSA leaders saw the business processes it wanted to change -- namely to reallocate workspace as an on-demand service -- and saw how the cloud could get them there. It's a good example of cloud solving a business problem, not simply being a cheaper way to do IT -- and one that busineses, not just government agencies, would do well take a closer look at.
