The way forward

Cloud Computing is at the heart of the technology enablers of the 4th industrial revolution that our era is going through. Cloud Computing has reached a maturity, acceptance, and consumption level that should create a favourable environment for any government to adopt pro Cloud policies. Realizing the power and potential while addressing the challenges of Cloud Computing is the question that this report is trying to address. We defined a framework that considers four important challenges to be addressed that will help develop the Cloud in any specific country: Skills, Innovation, Infrastructure, and Trust. It is believed that these are the founding pillars to leverage the Cloud opportunity and address the core challenges posed by the Cloud.
