Beth Killoran, deputy chief information officer at the General Services Administration (GSA), said the agency wants to use cloud technology in new ways that would require a modular environment. 

She said at the IT Modernization Summit that the plug-and-play approach would help agencies better accommodate work-from-home arrangements, FedScoop reported Wednesday.

Adopting a distributed, flexible cloud approach will help government agencies prevent cloud lock, as not all forms of cloud function the same way, the deputy CIO added.

“And so I think we’re going to start seeing some cloud brokerage and some cloud distribution so that we can utilize the best capabilities of cloud environments," she said.
