In the first quarter of 2014, the federal government of India expects to start the trial run of its Meghraj government cloud (g-cloud), which will offer infrastructure, platform, software, and storage as a service in a private cloud model. Forrester believes that India's g-cloud holds significant potential for the central government to increase its agility, efficiency, and collaboration. However, to make the g-cloud initiative a success, India will need to focus more on integrating applications and standardizing and optimizing its technology infrastructure. This report reflects Forrester's views of India's g-cloud initiative and provides guidance to the Indian government and the infrastructure and operations professionals who work with it on how to get the most from the g-cloud.
