Network performance and security are vital
elements of any business. Organisations are
increasingly adopting virtualisation and cloud

security. Greater volumes of data, rapidlyevolving threats and stricter regulations have
forced organisations to deploy new categories
of security tools, e.g. Web Access Firewalls
(WAFs) or Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS).
Yet, simply adding more security tools may not
always be the most efficient solution.

Government agencies often look to promote new technology for cost-savings and efficiency, but it does not stop there. The second and third-tier effects of technology can be long lasting for citizens, businesses, and economies. When public institutions adopt the cloud, they experience an internal transformation. Inside an organization, cloud usage drives greater accessibility of data and information sharing, increases worker productivity, and improves resource allocation. The external benefit of the cloud is recognized through a government’s ability to put reclaimed time and resources toward serving citizens. This includes provisioning public services, such as occupational-skills training, quicker and more effective service delivery, a pathway to a more productive workforce, and ultimately, a boost to local development. This whitepaper examines the enterprise-level benefits of the cloud, as well as the residual impact on economic development. The U.S. Economic Development Administration
