Cloud Computing: Nation Transformation

Philip Abraham, Founder, Chairman & Chief Technology Officer at CloudFace Labs & CloudFace LLC  participates in Risk Roundup with Jayshree Pandya to discuss “Cloud Computing and Nation Transformation”.



As cloud computing shapes the “Digital Global Age”, we the humans now have the ability to imagine, innovate, and create a whole new world of possibilities– a novel way of doing things that was beyond individual human imagination and capabilities so far.

It seems that this amazing ability of “cloud computing” extends the range of human imagination and exploration beyond the individual, inherent, imperfect and incomplete processing capability of the human brain as we know now. As a result, “cloud computing” is seen by many across nation as the innovation that would bring next wave of fundamental transformation for nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA).

While “cloud computing” is getting embraced for the potential benefits it could provide in speed, efficiency, flexibility, authenticity, accessibility and affordability; it isn’t just about benefiting industries or improving processes. It greatly benefits governments, organizations, academia as well as individuals, in short entire nations, irrespective of their geographical location and gives an opportunity for novel business, management and governance models.

Cloud Computing is very much on its way towards fundamentally shaping and enabling a deeper understanding of everything– from the behavior of nations: its government, industries, organizations, academia and individuals (NGIOA-I), to projecting complex business, economic and societal outcomes. As a result, “cloud computing”-driven insights are now providing both direct and indirect benefits to the daily lives of individuals and entities across NGIOA through advances in pretty much everything.

Cloud computing not only has the potential to accelerate ideas, innovations and transformation in cyberspace but also encourages and enhances collaborations and cooperation within, between and across NGIOA in cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS).

As a result, the ability to collect and evaluate data in cyberspace from numerous sources in geospace and space creates a huge potential for cloud computing to generate breakthroughs in many fields! In short, cloud computing brings nations, and human society a potential to bring fundamental transformation and is on its way to changing the way entities across NGIOA drive value from the Digital Global Age.

This gives a hope that, cloud computing is going to further the markets and economies—for both the developing and developed nations! It is growing rapidly and the growth is not only happening in advanced geographical nations and regions, but expected across all nations and regions.

While “cloud computing” brings disruptive potential and possibilities for each individual and entities across NGIOA, it also brings critical security risks that needs to be identified, understood and managed.

About the Host of Risk Roundup
Jayshree Pandya (née Bhatt) is a visionary leader, who is working passionately with imagination, insight and boldness to achieve “Global Peace through Risk Management”. It is her strong belief that collaboration between and across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be mutually beneficial to all—for not only in the identification and understanding of critical risks facing one nation, but also for managing the interconnected and interdependent risks facing all nations. She calls on nations to build a shared sense of identity and purpose, for how the NGIOA framework is structured will determine the survival and success of nations in the digital global age. She sees the big picture, thinks strategically and works with the power of intentionality and alignment for a higher purpose—for her eyes are not just on the near at hand but on the future of humanity!
At Risk Group, Jayshree is defining the language of risks and currently developing thought leadership, researching needed practices, tools, framework and systems to manage the “strategic and shared risks” facing nations in a “Global Age”. She believes that cyberspace cannot be secured if NGIOA works in silo within and across its geographical boundaries. As cyber-security requires an integrated NGIOA approach with a common language, she has recently launched “cyber-security risk research center” that will merge the boundaries of “geo-security, cyber-security and space-security”.
Previously, she launched and managed “Risk Management Matters”, an online risk journal and one of the first risk publications, publishing “Industry Risk Reports of Biotechnology, Energy, Healthcare, Nanotechnology, and Natural Disasters” over the course of five years. Jayshree’s inaugural book, “The Global Age: NGIOA @ Risk”, was published by Springer in 2012.

About Risk Roundup

“Risk Roundup” is an “integrated strategic security risk dialogue” for nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) in cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS). Risk Roundup is released in both audio and video format and is available for subscription at (Risk Group WebsiteiTunesGoogle PlayStitcher RadioAndroid, and Risk Group Professional Social Media).

About Risk Group
Risk Group believes that risk management, security and peace walk together hand in hand. Though security is related to management of threats and peace to the management of conflict, risk management is related to management of security vulnerabilities as well as management of conflict, and it is not possible to conceive any one of the three without the existence of the other two. All three concepts feed into each other. Risk Group believes that the security we build for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for everyone across nations. Tradition becomes our security-so if we build a culture of managing risks effectively it will lead us to security and security will lead us to peace!
