Mark Forman was the first e-gov administrator at OMB. He’s a big believer in the power of the cloud, and he and his partner John Marshall are putting their money – and their work – where their beliefs are. They’re bringing a cloud solution to the grants process, and they join In Depth to talk about why they’re banking on the cloud. Also, the cloud-first policy is creating a little heartburn, thanks to some high-profile data breaches in the last few weeks. Forman talks about what you should be thinking about as you transition to the cloud.
