In recent years cloud computing has become an important alternative for IT sourcing for the Norwegian public sector. We see that a growing number of both infrastructure and software services are being supplied in the cloud. Provided that other important considerations are not compromised, Norwegian public sector enterprises should be able to use cloud services wherever they promise the best result and the most cost-effective solution. Cloud services differ from traditional out-sourcing models in important areas. This creates challenges for enterprises considering using such services. The strategy addresses these issues, and lists a number of measures the Norwegian government will take to ensure secure and proper use of cloud computing in the public sector.
