Should Canadian Government outsource IT to the Cloud?

Our upcoming white paper ‘Building Ontario’s Cloud Roadmap‘ will explore how more use of Cloud outsourcing will help boost Ontario’s flagging economy.

Recognized experts make this same recommendations. Other papers we will be using as reference papers include the Drummond Report as well as Roger Martin’s Prosperity report.

Both make the same points, that i) there is opportunity to cut costs and the deficit by more efficient outsourcing this way, and ii) there is also a lack of investment into productivity-boosting new technologies, essential to accelerating more innovation and new growth.

However as we can see through this initiative from the OPSEU, there is also an institutional resistance to this approach, and so our white paper will explore the tension of these two views and seek to find an ideal scenario that meets the needs of both.

In the meantime what do you think:
