Cloud computing could revolutionize the intelligence community’s analytical and big data processing capabilities, according to a white paper released by The Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA).

“However, before adopting a cloud architecture, organizations must fully articulate and assess how this technological approach will enable their organization’s mission capabilities, cost-effectiveness, and the security of their classified data and intelligence,” said Bob Gourley, INSA’s Cloud Computing Task Force Chair and principal author of the paper, reported Rutrell Yasin at FCW's sister site, GCN.com.
