    Ready For The Federal Government's App Store?


    Well, ready or not, it's here. Today, Federal CIO Vivek Kundra unveiled the web address for federal agencies to purchase and download applications approved by the government to replace costly computer systems and servers. It's all part of the Obama administration's goal of bringing the federal government's computer systems into the 21st century utilizing cloud based techonology and "to help reduce the $75 billion annual budget for federal I.T. in the process" according to an article today from The New York Times.

    Kundra asked, “Why should the government pay and build infrastructure that may be available for free? Some applications are free, and even if the government has to pay for the software, it might avoid the cost of buying servers and building data centers." Very smart thinking in tough economic times and a much better use of taxpayer dollars for necessary IT maintenance.
