Apr 01, 2010 (03:04 PM EDT)
WASHINGTON, April 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A recent episode of Washington Business Tonight featured David Lucas, Chief Strategy Officer for GCE who discussed cloud computing and its role in business today.
Cloud computing is operating technology over the Internet. It allows an organization to maintain, store and house data and networks without the need to invest in or own hardware, software, and staff to run massive technology solutions.
Lucas provided a broad overview on what and how cloud computing is structured and operated. Likening it to e-filing taxes through the Internet, Lucas said that, "Cloud computing is taking that same approach and applying it to much more highly complex software packages for business and federal government."
The episode noted that a cabinet-level agency has moved to a cloud-based solution. GCE provided the financial management system that helped the agency with their first financial system overhaul in 20 years.
GCE's cloud-computing solution sets a high standard for other Federal entities looking to modernize their financial management system and drive good government. The solution allows an agency to focus on its core mission-challenges, and because the solution is cloud based, they do not have to invest in or own hardware, software, and staff to run massive technology solutions.
GCE is an enterprise-class financial management solution provider to government agencies. GCE's cloud-computing based solution is designed to drive major operational efficiencies and compliance with federal guidelines.
