The Ministry of Information and Communications, in collaboration with Microsoft, organised a workshop on openness and cloud computing for creating an open, flexible and secure e-governance cloud platform.

In line with new trends in global IT, Vietnam understands that cloud computing helps to save the state budget, improve the IT performance and accelerate innovation of the bureaucracy. This is also considered a foundation for Vietnam to continue implementing large systems of e-governance on a national scale, which includes a database, an email system and an integrated e-document exchange system.

G-Cloud solution will facilitate information exchange between management agencies, and between public service agencies and citizens. This, consequently, will shorten service time, save costs and make the process more transparent.

At the deployment, in a "government cloud", ministries and department can interact and share cloud infrastructure to enhance management and administration performance while being secure at the highest level.-VNA
