Government’s mulling policy framework on cloud computing; What does it mean for SMEs?

The Indian government is looking to script a new policy framework for Cloud computing to address apprehensions over security and to drive adoption of the platform in the country. The move will expand market opportunity for Cloud services start-ups, while reducing cost of IT operations for SMEs across sectors.

Minister for Communications and IT, Kapil Sibal, said the government would collaborate with the industry and academia to develop a secure and progressive ecosystem for the Cloud.

The government expects the new policy to specially benefit SMEs in reducing their IT infrastructure costs to a large extent. “The focus could be on SMEs and the starting point and vision,” said Sibal without giving any details of the proposed norms. He was speaking at a conference organized by the Confederation of Indian Industry. more details here
