The minister of communication and information society, Augustin Jianu, said that the government plans to use the cloud in order to work with the private sector.
Although he didn’t elaborate too much on this statement, he said that the authorities want to create a government agency with the private sector, to create a government cloud that will provide software as a service for the government and private companies.
“The government will not have servers, issues with the infrastructure, because the infrastructure will be externalized. It will be a big challenge, but we believe that we will change the way in which the government works,” said Jianu, according to Agerpres newswire.
The minister also talked about the RO-NET project, claiming that the authorities are currently looking to install Wi-Fi in rural areas that could be used by public institutions.
“Regarding the companies, it is my responsibility to have e-governance services, similar to citizens, so as to interact faster and easier with the government,” said the minister.
