Dec. 11 – IBM will develop an e-government cloud for Ho Chi Minh City to enable a one-stop solution for government services and allow better access to government information.

According to technology news site, Sys-Con Media, the company will first consolidate all of the city government’s e-mail systems and web sites. IBM will also be working with the Ministry of Science and Technology for a Vietnam Information for Science and Technology Advance Innovation Portal that will be managed via cloud infrastructure.

Cloud computing is an internet-based network composed of servers that manages huge amounts of information and allows it to provide various services to clients.

Last year, the company set up its first cloud computing data centers located at IBM offices in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City for companies that want to test technology infrastructure and other applications.
