Ottawa, ON… CATAAlliance, Canada's largest high tech association, today launched an advocacy Campaign to encourage Canadian governments at all levels to adopt mandatory Cloud Computing policies modeled after Australia’s progressive cloud model.

Known as the May to Must Cloud Computing Campaign, it would help establish government as a technical leader in the marketplace with important flow-on effect benefits to the broader economy.

CATA CEO, John Reid, said, “Improved adoption of cloud services by the government sends an important signal to the private sector. If government agencies were perceived to be treating cloud services as risky, this could reduce the adoption in the economy more generally.”

He added, “It is encouraging to see the progressive steps being taken by the Australian government to propel uptake of Cloud, not just in a restricted public-cloud way, but in a full-spectrum use of Cloud solutions. When a Government mandates cloud, what excuse do other businesses have?”

CATAAlliance cited Australia, as model for government modernization, and has taken the initiative to invite Australian thought leaders to share their best practices with officials at Shared Services Canada (SSC), the Canadian department mandated to transform the delivery of services to citizens.
