Saas can save US government 6.6 billion dollars
According to a study conducted by MeriTalk, an online community that studies public policy and IT, the US federal government could save billions by moving to more open source software, virtualization and Saas. “With a grave economic outlook and a new administration in office, Federal agencies will be forced to do more with less,” the study says. “Instead of worrying over a budget stop, why not make the most of the money we are already investing?”
MeriTalk stresses that 6.6 billion dollars could be saved with an improved use of Saas technologies, which would secure the salaries of more than 107.000 (!) Federal civilian employees this year.
