Good Enough for Government Work: The White House Endorses Software as a Service

by ,

I read an article posted online last month in the PC World Business Center titled “White House Official Pushes for Software as a Service,” which provides a little more fuel for the SaaS revolution. 

Grant Gross of IDG News Service reports “A top official with the U.S. White House's Office of Management and Budget (OMB) gave her strongest endorsement yet to software as a service, saying…it can help federal agencies cut development costs.”

Karen Evans, administrator of the OMB's Office of Electronic Government and Information Technology said "Our track record is clear -- we are not very good at delivering our own software in the time frame set." Evans added, "We're also not very good at managing large projects."

That be said, that’s exactly why companies of all sizes and industries choose to work with vendors like Widen to manage and deliver large projects within a set time frame.
