Federal Chief Information Officer Tony Scott has said that updates to existing information technology infrastructures pose a challenge to federal agencies, FCW reported Tuesday.

“All of us are being asked to take technology that was designed and largely figured out in the ’80s and ’90s, some of it in the ’60s, and apply security to it,” Scott said Tuesday at the Cloud Computing Forum and Workshop held by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

“It’s expensive, hard to do, and the result is not actually all that great,” he added.

Zach Noble writes Scott also noted that cloud platforms provide government agencies access to scalable services and user-centered IT design.
