The Office of Management and Budget recently released a list of 78 projects slated for transition to cloud over the next year. The most common application, according to a FierceGovernmentIT, is email, with 14 agencies deciding to choose a cloud version. A close second is website hosting, with 10 agencies. The move is expected to esult in over $5B in budget savings. Vivek Kundra discussed the transition last week during an appearance in front of the Senate Homeland Security Committee.
GSA also recently released a request for proposal for SaaS email. The RFP appears to be looking to leverage the earlier GSA IaaS procurement winners.
