Google progress in the Federal space

This interview at Federal Computer Week gives some hints as to how far Google has progressed at getting Google Apps certified for use in Government work.  A  must-read for anyone on Federal contracts who are trying hard to do the right thing and save the taxpayers a buck or two.

Google’s Dave Girouard on Google-ization

Government figures prominently in Google’s enterprise business plans. The company is bolstering its federal office and establishing relationships with major systems integrators in the market. But will government technology executives be willing or able to trust core parts of their operations to the Web giant?

Girouard:
The last issue, which is a very big one, is
data security and trust. They are related. Is data secure if it’s in
someone else’s data center? That’s in my mind the last frontier. The
technical issues are largely dispensed with.
