The explosion of cloud technologies in the early 2010s was followed by a subsequent explosion of cybersecurity breaches that caused many government organizations to rethink transitioning to the cloud. To address these concerns, a government-wide program, FedRAMP, was launched in 2012, to produce a set of cloud security standards for all federal agencies to follow. These standards have helped government and technology providers, including GovDelivery, to raise the bar on cloud security.

For the first several years of introduction (and encouragement) of cloud into the federal government, the biggest roadblock was the perception that giving up itemized control of systems meant weakened security and greater vulnerability. FedRAMP offers a way for agencies and their leaders to feel assured that cloud solutions can stand up to higher standards.

Government agencies are responsible for serving citizens and doing so in an effective and productive manner. From promoting government services, providing financial assistance, connecting businesses to loan and growth opportunities, public sector organizations deliver information that can change lives for millions of people. However, the success of these services relies on the ability to effectively express and share information with constituents. To put it succinctly, if an organization is unable to get information to the people and assist them in getting where they need to go, communicators can really miss the mark on citizen service.

Today’s government agencies are increasingly challenged to push the limits on the digital experiences they offer citizens while keeping accessibility in mind. It’s not enough to have a website – that site has to be mobile enabled with key information available within just one or two clicks.

Advancing agriculture in this day and age is no simple feat. Especially taking into account the rallying cry of keeping pace to feed a burgeoning world population – expected to exceed 9.6 billion by 2050 according to the United Nations. And never before has the value of research in agriculture been so paramount: the production of GMO crops; the ever-increasing threat of crop pests and diseases; animal health and welfare; and of course, Mother Nature herself. The agricultural industry must have access to data to understand, prepare for, mitigate, and learn from all of these impacts in order to achieve sustainable production.
