Trends:Cloud computing is also expected to enable the government to meet the objectives set out in the National Development Plan and SA Connect, including achieving better coordination between government departments and enabling the delivery of e-government services, yet the use these services have been limited within the public sector.

Other barriers include issues around data classification, data protection, security and residency, availability and cost of underlying broadband infrastructure, and lack of implementation of uniform open standards.
