Lessons learned

Cloud Computing is gaining maturity, acceptance and deployments across the world, but different nations are at different stages of adopting Cloud technologies and have taken different paths to enabling those technologies in various forms. Besides commercial organizations, many governments around the world are enjoying the benefits of Cloud Computing, but their different experiences and different results in this domain offer several lessons for others about the relative merits of a range of regulatory approaches.
