Gov’t look­ing to the cloud for greater ef­fi­ciency

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Gov­ern­ment ap­pli­ca­tions and in­for­ma­tion sys­tems are be­ing moved to vir­tual servers, the Gov­ern­ment Cloud (G-Cloud), in a bid to mod­ern­ize Greece’s pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tion.

The state has al­ready moved 12 of its in­for­ma­tion sys­tems to the G-Cloud and there are plans to trans­fer an­other 60 soon. The to­tal project will cost close to 18 mil­lion eu­ros but is ex­pected to lead to sav­ings in the long term through, among other things, lower main­te­nance and tech­ni­cal sup­port costs.

Ad­min­is­tra­tive Re­form Min­is­ter Olga Gerovasili called it an “em­blem­atic project” that would place Greece among the lead­ing coun­tries in the use of in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy in the pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tion.
