US Government Evaluates Cloud Computing Roadmap
The US Department of Commerce's National Institute on Standards and Technology (NIST) has published a draft of a Cloud Computing Roadmap. The Roadmap will establish plans for how the federal government will adopt and manage all aspects of cloud computing, such as standards, portability, security, and interoperability.
The Roadmap included accessibility as part of a user scenario in which technology choices are driven by public policy such as Section 508. Raising the Floor submitted comments on the Roadmap pointing out where more attention to accessibility might fit, and how the Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure (GPII) could play a part.
