In the midst of significant growth in interest and usage of online computing in government, Focus Washington’s Karen Hanretty interviewed Kumar Vora, Vice President and General Manager for LiveCycle at Adobe Systems Incorporated. They discussed cloud computing, transparency, and Adobe’s approach to this key aspect of the government market.
A phenomenon born out of the connectivity of the Web, cloud computing can help address key challenges such as making it easier for government to interconnect systems, share data and information, and bring people together to collaborate, Vora explained in the interview. Further, he said, cloud computing can help in delivering on the goals of transparency and openness by providing greater data and process visibility.
The interview also covers potential security and privacy concerns with this newer approach to computing and some of the technologies available to address them, including authentication and digital signature systems.
