The cloud platform will be based on open source technologies and open standards. This will free the agencies from being dependent on just a single vendor and their technologies, the Ministry of Security and Public Administration said. External parties can improve or use the platform since it will be built on open source, the Ministry added.

The platform will improve interoperability of systems and data portability between agencies, increasing communication and collaboration between government officials, the Ministry said.

The National Information Society Agency will be leading the project and will be partnering with small and medium enterprises which specialise in cloud services. The cloud platform will be completed by 2016.
