Q&A with NIST Cloud Exec Dawn Leaf — FedTech Magazine.

Cloud computing is definitely a game changer, says Dawn Leaf.

For agencies to take advantage of the technology will require work on their part, on industry’s part and by organizations such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology. At NIST, Leaf is leading efforts to create a roadmap to speed standards development and identify the best ways to overcome common hurdles.
