Adobe Discusses Cloud Computing and Government

Technology expert provides insight on important Washington issue

Cloud Expo on Ulitzer

In the midst of significant growth in interest and usage of online computing in government, Focus Washington's Karen Hanretty interviewed Kumar Vora, Vice President and General Manager for LiveCycle at Adobe Systems Incorporated, as part of Focus Washington's TechView series.

They discussed cloud computing, transparency, and Adobe's approach to this key aspect of the government market.

A phenomenon born out of the connectivity of the Web, cloud computing can help address key challenges such as making it easier for government to interconnect systems, share data and information, and bring people together to collaborate, Vora explained in the interview. Further, he said, cloud computing can help in delivering on the goals of transparency and openness by providing greater data and process visibility.

The interview also covered potential security and privacy concerns with this newer approach to computing and some of the technologies available to address them, including authentication and digital signature systems.

Focus Washington TechView aims to explore the intersection between technology, government and policy. It can be found at www.focuswashington.com/techview.
