Technology in the 2010 Federal Budget

Technology is a focus of the Administration's 2010 budget:

"New technology has the potential to drive innovation in Government by making it possible to connect Government employees to one another and to the American people, thereby enabling the sharing of information and expertise, and the solving of problems in new and more effective ways."

The Analytical Perspectives that accompanies the budget contains analyses designed to highlight specified subject areas, including crosscutting initiatives.  Under Crosscutting Programs is Section 9 - Leveraging the Power of Technology to Transform Government.  This section addresses Government 2.0, IT policy, and improving innovation, efficiency and effectiveness of Federal IT.

Cloud-computing is presented as "a convenient, on-demand model for network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction."
