Panel session and white paper explore best practices for building, deploying and managing an e-government cloud

Palo Alto, CA – May 8, 2014 – Cloud adoption has had a tremendous impact on e-government, leading to reduced operations costs, a smaller IT footprint, the sharing of knowledge and infrastructure, and more effective public services. WSO2 Vice President of Platform Evangelism Chris Haddad will examine best practices for managing government cloud deployments in a panel discussion at Cloud Computing East 2014. The conference runs May 15-16 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Washington, DC.

Additionally, a new white paper by WSO2 Director of Solutions Architecture Mifan Careem examines the technical considerations and requirements for cloud-enabling public services through a platform as a service (PaaS).

Cloud Computing East 2014: Government Cloud Management
Chris Haddad will join a panel discussion at Cloud Computing East 2014, which will be held on Thursday, May 15, 2014, from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.

The interactive session, "gCLOUD© Management," is part of the event's Government gCLOUD© Track, focusing on government cloud computing deployments. As part of the panel discussion, Chris will explore government cloud management best practices for maintaining high availability, reliability and security integrity in a dynamic, hybrid environment. He also will examine the cloud-based technologies that are transforming business processes, improving efficiency, and streamlining costs.

In addition to Chris, the session will include moderator DCIA Associate Ross Freedman, and panelists: Clear Government Solutions President Chris Grady; Virtustream Senior Vice President Sean Jennings; and NetApp, Cloud Architect, US Public Sector Rediet Tilahun.

White Paper: Cloud Computing in E-Government
In his white paper, "Connected Government, Cloud Enabling Public Services,” Mifan Careem looks at the functional and nonfunctional challenges that arise in building an e-government stack and how an enterprise-ready PaaS can help in solving these challenges.

Mifan begins by exploring the role of cloud computing in e-government, and how organizations are focusing on the delivery of technology to end consumers. He then examines three different PaaS models for e-government: centrally owned and managed; centrally owned, but locally managed; locally owned and managed.

Mifan also discusses the major requirements of a typical multi-tenant e-government application, as well as the challenges that arise when building an e-government stack. He also explores considerations, such as a hierarchical governance model and subtenants, and a multi-tenant portal solution to support both government-to-consumer and consumer-to-government interactions.

Finally, Mifan reviews how multi-tenant, cloud-ready WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware products, WSO2 Cloud, and WSO2 Private PaaS can effectively address digital government requirements.
