Commentary and Opinions

The collection of information generated from the online activities of citizens, by both private and public interests, has become so widespread and pervasive that it has prompted several social commentators to label today’s digital-defined culture as “The Surveillance Age.” The moniker is an apt one, in part given the fact that nearly every sovereign state with the means is conducting high-tech surveillance programs, a practice that is considered by most to be integral to national security and ensuring the safety of the state and its citizens.
By Jonathan LewisData breaches occur more often than we realize, and affect everyone from consumers to municipal governments. 
Government computing has undergone rapid change in recent years. Within the data center, multiple drivers are pushing cloud computing to the forefront, including technology policies such as “Cloud First” and general austerity mandates aimed at eliminating large infrastructure or asset ownership and management. Defense and military applications are also changing, as the applications that a warfighter utilizes at the tactical edge are becoming increasingly compute-intensive to enhance and extend combat cognition, efficiency and effectiveness.
Mobility, bring-your-own-device and telework policies pay off several times over. In addition to creating a work-life balance for employees with anytime, anywhere connectivity, the ability to go mobile can help to ease vexing budgetary constraints that many state and local governments will carry, once again, into a new year. With these benefits and a growing citizen demand for round-the-clock accessibility to government services and information, few will dispute that mobility presents a compelling value proposition for state and local governments.
