Cloud adoption has had a tremendous impact on e-Government or digital government, leading to reduced operations cost, reduced IT footprint, sharing of knowledge and infrastructure and overall more effective public services. National and local governments that are capitalizing on the cloud infrastructure are starting to reap benefits with improved government to government (G2G), government to business (G2B) and government to citizen (G2C) services.
As applications and their architecture become more complex by the day and as more and more applications start moving towards the cloud, nonfunctional requirements start becoming the key set of requirements that need to be satisfied in order to ensure successful implementation. NFRs have become the key set of issues that enterprise architectects, devops, and implementers face in the move towards cloud-based systems.
This whitepaper on Connected Government – Cloud enabling public services provides an insight into the challenges of building an eGovernment solution, and how an enterprise grade Platform as a Service can help achieve the key NFRs.
