Roadmap about migration of public services into the cloud

A step by step roadmap for Public Authorities to help them as they plan, determine effort and budget, select the appropriate services, make the required internal organisational changes and finally execute the migration into cloud.


The storing of data in different location premises also raises the question of who owns the data a user stores in the cloud. By doing so, the IT admins, engineers, and troubleshooting agents of a provider of cloud services all have access to this information (Murley, 2009). Moreover, the cloud also generates data itself for different purposes, such as providing accountability, improving services provided, or security performance or security. Digital interactions and tracks are thus being gathered together through unique identifiers and algorithms, which leaves a trail of personal information. There is an ethical duty to not access this information with harmful intent or reckless behaviour, either by providers or third-parties such as hackers (fraudulent use), or it may be accessed and used in ways that individuals did not envisioned.

Also, information stored with a third party can be of easy access to Government agencies and private litigants more easily than from the original owner or creator of the content. This causes a severe ethical issue has to whether it righteous or not to do so, even by Public Authorities figures.
Ownership problems also incur in situations related with infringements on copyrights, since access to massive computing storage, cloud services might facilitate sharing copyrighted material (Nelson, 2009).
