Governments worldwide are looking to the cloud to accomplish the seemingly impossible: improve and expand services to citizens, while cutting costs. The U.S. government has adopted a “cloud first” strategy and is pushing agencies to actively migrate services to the cloud.

But how does the United States compare against other nation’s cloud initiatives?  In this report, we look at how policymakers in three countries – the United States (U.S.), the United Kingdom (U.K.), and Australia – have moved from strategy to action when it comes to enabling government services with cloud computing.

·         How the purchasing power of the US federal government can change the cloud procurement process

·         What impact of the UK’s target setting practices has on cloud implementation and procurement

·         Whether Australia is having success with their conservative risk averse approach to the cloud
