It's really a paradigm shift for federal agencies to look at how they move workload into the cloud when they start to consider being able to take advantage of newer emerging technologies. You mentioned two of them, machine learning and artificial intelligence. In order for those technologies to really work well, data has to be aggregated somewhere so that you can run the scripts on that data and get the outcomes that you're looking for. Federal agencies are challenged with creating data stores that this technology can be used against, and that aggregation of data creates another issue when you talk about cyber security.
