  • The US federal government will soon adopt a "cloud-first" policy, meaning federal agencies will be required to used cloud services "whenever a secure, reliable, cost-effective cloud option exists." The announcement came last week from Jeffrey Zients, the government's first chief performance officer. According to the Washington Post, the new policy is part of a broader government initiative to "fix IT."

    The Post quoted Zients saying: "Fixing IT is central to everything we're trying to do across government. IT is our top priority."

    Zients also wants to:

    * Give programs more flexibility in how they budget for IT projects
    * Turn oversight panels into investment review boards
    * Establish career paths for program managers
    * Bring IT acquisition processes inline with the speed at which technology changes
