GCE Pushes Cloud for Federal Finance Management

GCEGCE has picked risk assessment, federal accounting tools and Healthcare.gov as the top three topics of interest in 2013 related to federal financial management.

The Reston, Va.-based cloud company also discussed the importance of using shared services to acquire systems with analytics features.

In a Dec. 13 blog entry, GCE cited a Gartner report that highlights business intelligence and analytics as the government CIO’s top technology “must-haves.”

The “Government CIO Agenda 2013: ‘Do Better With the Same” study recommended that amid reduced spending and elevated expectations of increased efficiencies, federal IT should look into outsourcing models offered by software-as-a-service and infrastructure-as-a-service architectures.

GCE identified planning as an essential takeaway for any future large-scale IT project, noting that this was a key lesson learned from the Affordable Care Act online portal.

    The best part about shared services is that agencies have to pay for their own data, which creates the perfect vendor lock-in environment. The result is increased profits and an opportunity to charge more for the additional services needed to run large reports.
