GovConExec Magazine Launches Cloud Computing Issue

Executive Mosaic, publisher of The New New Internet and other news sites related to government contracting, announced today the release of its spring edition of GovConExec magazine, which focuses on cloud computing and the executives who are spearheading the move for government customers.

In the latest issue, which marks GovConExec’s fifth issue and second year of publishing, readers will meet the executives of some of the top cloud-providing companies, CIOs and CTOs who understand what makes the technology tick and how the cloud is transforming healthcare, intelligence activities, government and industry alike.

In addition, Google Internet evangelist Vint Cerf shares his thoughts about cloud computing, IPv6 and a “pivotal” 2011 in an exclusive article.

“Cloud computing is a major emerging trend in the government-contracting market, and GovConExec magazine is right on top of it,” said Jim Garrettson, Executive Mosaic publisher.“That’s what our magazine does best. We provide cutting-edge coverage geared toward the executives who lead the government-contracting industry.”

Cloud computing is one of the most important technological changes for the private and public sectors seen in years, said Gerry Simone, recently named editor-in-chief of Executive Media’s online and print publications.

“We wanted to highlight this new technology and invite top government contractors with cloud expertise to share their insight,” she said.

The spring issue will also feature a breakdown of the unique dimensions of M&A activity in government contracting, the evolving technology of biometrics and an inside look at managing the public face of top GovCon firms.
